If peer pressure has kept you from 
getting a Saab, get new peers. 

Too bad you're a grown- 
up, who'll tell you to stop 
doing something dumb when 
everybody else does it? 

Please let us: "Just because 
your friends throw away 
money to strike a pose in a 
car, it doesn't mean you 

There. Now you're free to 
get the best performance, 
handling and safety your 
money can buy, with abso- 
lutely no fear of getting beat 
up on by your buddies. Get 

yourself a Saab. 

The turbocharged Saab 
9000 CD shown here, for 
example, is quicker than 
most European cars near its 
price ($32,995*) and many 
cars tar costlier. (Saabs are 
intelligently priced from 
$16,995 to $32,995.) The gang 
will be genuinely irritated to 
learn this. 

Saabs handle with the 
best Europe has to offer. But 
front-wheel drive helps them 
do this in bad weather as 

well as good. This will irk your 
neighbors, when you make 
tracks while they make ruts. 

Saabs are very safe cars. 
For five years running they've 
ranked best in their class, 
according to the Highway 
Loss Data Institute. Better 
than that other Swedish car. 
This shocks everybody. 

The 9000 CD (and all 1990 
Saabs) comes with driver's 
air bag, ABS brakes and new 
Roadside Assistance Program, 
standard. It also comes with 

incredible roominess. Which 
will amaze your cronies who 
ride in it. 

Test drive a Saab soon. 
Take one home and irritate, 
irk, shock and amaze your 
peers. But who 

We've been 
doing that for 
years. And 
we're not the 
least bit 
sorry. The most intelligent 
cars ever built.

Last February, when cocaine 
cowboy Gus Farace killed un- 
dercover drug agent Everett 
Hatcher, he touched off a na- 
tionwide manhunt. But not 
only the Feds were after the 
hulking wiseguy. Police pres- 
sure on the Bonanno and Co- 
lombo crime families had put 
them in the hunt as well. Then, 
last November, Farace was 
shot dead while he sat in a Pon- 
tiac on a Bensonhurst street. 
"We'd all seen that face in our

identified Farace's body.

leanie Kasindoifs January 15 cover 
story on the controversy over fur prompted 
an extraordinary response. Here is a sam- 
pling. More letters will appear in future 

The CokJ War 

it's time for the fur industry to Ap- 
plaud the millions of men and women 
who wear their warm fur garments with 
pride. Our customers deserve a standing 
ovation for ignoring the intimidating tac- 
tics of the many fanatic animal-extremist 
groups and braving subfreezing tempera- 
tures with the help of their furs. 

The anti-fur activists' interfering with 
people's freedom of choice of how to live, 
what to eat, and what to wear didn't sit 
well with the majority of the American 
people. When given the choice between 
facts and emotional rhetoric, Americans 
chose the truth — that the American fur in- 
dustry has absolutely nothing to hide. We 
are proud of what we do for a living. More 
important, we are a responsible industry 
that cares for the welfare of our animals. 
If we treated our fur-bearing creatures 
like these so-called animal-rights groups 
claim we do, we'd be out of business. Tor- 
turing the mink and subjecting them to 
constant stress would only show up in 
poor pelt quality. The fur farmers dedi- 
cate their lives to these animals, while 
most of these activists have no idea what 
the mink even look like.

the fur war. I'd like to stress to the animal 
activists that some people wear fur for 
warmth, not vanity. I own four old, ugly 
fur coats that were given to me. Nothing 
keeps you warmer than fur. As long as I 
live in this climate, I will continue to wear 
fur, and when I can afford it, I will proba- 
bly buy one. 

Linda Russo 


dorfs implied condemnation of our in- 
dustry. Although 80 percent of the furs 
sold in the U.S. come from fur farms 
where animals are given the very best 
care, the writer chose to ignore the infor- 
mational resources of the Fur Farm Ani- 
mal Welfare Coalition. This organization 
has an admirable certification program

that ensures good housing, nutrition, and 
veterinary care. 

Tom Moriber 
Rein & Moriber, Inc. 


leanie Kasindorf replies: The issue of 
how many fur coats come from ranch ani- 
mals is much more complicated than Mr. 
Moriber suggests. Somewhere between 60 
and 80 percent of furs sold in the U.S. 
come from fur farms. But most of the 
ranched fur is imported from farms out- 
side the U.S., which have no relation to 
the Fur Farm Animal Welfare Coalition. 
In the U.S., only 25 percent of animals 
killed for their fur are raised on ranches. 

our industry's concern that everyone 
should be given a right to select his or her 
clothing or food was overshadowed by the 
animal activists' misinformation and the 
article's highly emotional photographs. 
The magazine had to reach into its files 
for a photo of a veal calf to illustrate

with it — fur is light, warm, comfortable, 
durable, natural, and economical. A good 
fur can last ten years or more. Since the 
beginning of time, man has survived by 
trapping animals for food and wearing 
furs to keep warm. If those dummies out 
there who paint their faces and parade 
around making idiots out of themselves 
would stop and think for a minute, they 
would realize that without the very thing 

they are campaigning against, they 
wouldn't be here today. If they care so 
much, why don't they go down into the 
bowels of this city and spend all the mon- 
ey they are throwing away on this useless 
campaign to feed and clothe the

like New York would choose to do a cover 
story on an issue that the public is getting 
very bored with. Men and women want to 
wear fur and are not going to let a minor- 
ity dictate to them what they should eat or 
what they should wear. Lest you forget, 
allow me to remind you that freedom of 
choice is the cornerstone of our society.

ment, I find it gratifying to hear fur wear- 
ers making statements that prove their 
small-mindedness, self-absorption, and 
lack of social conscience. Yet your quote 
from Suzy Chaffee defies all believability. 
Nobody can be that stupid. 

S. Walsh 


jective article that presented good argu- 
ments for both the pro-fur and anti-fur 

I believe many anti-fur activists are 
hypocritical about environmental issues. I 
think in some cases they are just jealous 
of those attractive and successful women 
who wear fur coats. Bob Barker, who 
hangs his hat on the vanity issue, should 
do a survey asking how many anti-fur sup- 
porters would wear fur coats if they cost 
less than cloth coats. I suspect that many 
would wear fur, since it is warmer, more 
comfortable, and fashionable — not be- 
cause it is a status symbol. Celebrities and 
media catering to anti-fur activists on the 
advice of press agents are not very credi- 
ble. Most moviegoers do not wear fur, so 
it is easy to see which side a celebrity 
might choose. 

Farm-raised fur, leather, cotton, wool, 
and meat are the natural choices. Synthet- 
ic, toxic substances are not. If you can 
cat lamb and beef and wear lamb's wool 
and cow's leather, why can't you wear 
mink-farm fur and use the rest of the 
mink for livestock feed? The trapping of 
wildlife for furs should be controlled and 
limited, just like hunting and fishing, and

that, they would bring their babies to

These are enchanting animals — very

Recently, I found myself in a supermar-

sent the positive aspects of the fur indus- 
try or the concerns of millions of fur con- 
sumers and people who are employed in 
the industry. 

The animals used for the manufacturing 
of fur coats are, in many instances, 
ranched on farms for that sole purpose, 
and this does not lead to the endangering 
of the species. Other furs that are utilized 
are trapped, thus keeping our ecological 
system in balance. 

As I believe it says in the Bible, animals 
have been put on this earth since the be- 
ginning of man to keep him warm. If ani- 
mals were not taken from the environ- 
ment to be used by fur manufacturers, 
they would be killed by other animals. In a 
sense, this helps the delicate ecological 
balance of nature in that it prevents over- 
population and the destruction of the

paw off and escape (if it's lucky) is "tough 
love," according to Suzy Chaffee. And 
giving fur coats to the homeless in Grand 
Central is great, too, according to Chaffee 
(although spending the thousands of dol- 
lars that furs cost on apartments or job 

training might be a tad more useful). 

I say that with a few more fur-industry 
spokes people like Chaffee, we won't need 
an anti-fur movement. It'll die a natural 
death because everyone will realize only 
vain, self-centered simpletons wear fur.

lunatics I have met seem to be extreme- 
ly unhappy, misanthropic people. Real 
life appears to overwhelm them, and so 
they wrap themselves up in a cause that 
makes them feel good about themselves. 

They have that right. But they don't 
have the right to bludgeon others into 
their way of thinking. I am truly surprised 
at the amount of positive press they are 
getting, especially in view of the general- 
ly negative press anti-abortionists receive,

dongs given thought to the thousands of 
people who would be without work if the

activists drives me crazy. When Laura 
Chapin of the Humane Society insists that 
"it's perfectly logical to eat meat and 
wear leather and be against fur," she 
doesn't make any sense. If she can't per- 
ceive the inconsistency, that's sad; if she 
can, she's a hypocrite. 

The photo of Rosanna Arquette, who 
has taken a stand against fur, ironically 
shows her wearing a leather jacket. Why 
don't these people practice what they 
preach? Do they think the killing methods 
used to obtain lambskin are prettier than 
those used to kill cute, cuddly fur-bearing 

I have the stirrings of anti-fur senti- 
ment, but I am already a full-blown foe of 
hypocrisy. I can't bear the shoddy reason- 
ing of the militant, self-righteous mob. 
What distinguishes human beings from 
other animals is our ability and right to 
make personal choices. Like abortion, the 
right to wear ranched fur has become an 
arena in which a vocal minority seeks to 
harass the majority into submission. The 
world would be a kinder place if people 
would be a little less eager to impose their 
personal beliefs on others. Let he who is 
without sin cast the first stone.

Is Ed Koch already cheating 
on his Slim-Fast diet? 

Earlier this month, in a 
highly publicized press con- 
ference, the 244-pound for- 
mer mayor endorsed the 
weight-loss drink — reportedly 
for at least $100,000. Koch 
vowed to lose as much as 30 
pounds by limiting himself to 
[he drink at breakfast and 
lunch and to 600 calories at 
dinner. But last week, Koch 
was spotted eating lunch at 
the Rainbow Room. 

"I wasn't cheating," Koch 
says. "The lunch was very 
modest. I had oysters and 
swordfish. I'm not going to 
take Slim-Fast into a ritzy res- 
taurant. They'd have a fit. So I 
had my solid meal for lunch, 
and the shake for dinner. The 
secret to successful dieting is 
being able to bend the rules." 

The jazz club Condon's, 
where Koch drank his Slim- 
Fast the other day, will soon of- 
fer the diet aid for $9.

Malcolm Forbes is already ruffling some feathers at his down- 
town monthly. Egg, which makes its debut in mid-February. 

Forbes turned in a "letter from the publisher," which a source 
says was "unreadable." The editors of the square-shaped maga- 
zine debated whether to run it, the source says, "and if so, who 
would rewrite it." But editor Hal Rubenstein denies there's any 
squabbling: "Mr. Forbes asked if he could write it, and we said 
fine. It's his train set. We wanted him to make it more personal. 
We suggested some things, and he made the changes himself." 

Rubenstein is also said to be upset with Forbes's plans for 
Egg's premiere party on February 12, a charge he denies. "Even 
though his Morocco party was a disaster, he's rehired the people 
responsible for it," says another source. "And there are going to 
be a lot of Forbesians there." 

Rubenstein says, "Malcolm has one set of friends. I have an- 
other set of friends. ... It all balances out."

"threw up a bureaucratic wall" 
between Fernandez and Harvey 
Robins, a veteran cost-cutter. 
During his tenure as the 
board's finance chief, Robins 
became known as a "seeker 
and destroyer" of bureaucratic 
waste — eliminating 1 .200 of- 
fice jobs and taking chauffeur- 
driven limousines away from 
school officials. Robins was 
said to be angered by his sud- 
den lack of access to the new 
chancellor, and quit when Da- 
vid Dinkins offered him a job 
as head of the Mayor's Office 
of Operations. 

"1 don't get into this stuff — 

personal issues," says Robins. 
"I plan to support the mayor 
and the new chancellor." Litow 
denies there were problems: 
"Harvey and I are very close 
personal friends. He's a smart, 
tough, and talented administra- 
tor, and he left for a key job. 
They're lucky to get him, and 
we're sorry to lose him." 


Another star has fallen from Mike Ovitz's universe. Kim Ba- 
singer, who appeared in Batman and 9'/l» Weeks, has left Ovitz's 
Creative Artists Agency, the most powerful agency in Holly- 
wood. The actress has signed with InnerTalent, the upstart com- 
pany run by five renegade agents, including three who left CAA. 
Ovitz has been fighting a messy public battle with defecting 
screenwriter |oe Eszterhas. 

Neither Basinger nor the agencies would comment, but a 
source says, "CAA has a lot of big stars, and Kim has fell she 
could get more personal attention from a smaller agency. Ovitz 
is furious. He thinks CAA made Kim's career." 



Former Wall Street fournal 
editor Stewart Pinkerton may 
be going home again. Two 
weeks ago, Pinkerton abruptly 
left Kidder, Pcabody, where 
he had been managing direc- 
tor of corporate communica- 
tions for just over a year. 

A Kidder, Peabody spokes- 
woman confirmed that Pin- 
kerton resigned shortly after 
the number of people in his 
department was cut from ten 
to five. "The scope of his posi- 
tion changed, and he left," she 
says. "It was quite amicable 
on both sides." Early last year, 
Pinkerton, a former top WSf 
editor, reminisced in an inter- 
view about his old job. 

Pinkerton wouldn't com- 
ment, but a source says the 
24-year veteran of the fournal

The author of Mayflower Manners has made a major faux pas. 

In her new book on etiquette, Sydney Biddle Barrows addresses 
the question "If a host invites a known carrier of [aids] to a din- 
ner party, should he so inform his other guests?" Barrows an- 
swers, "Yes. Most people will know that they cannot contract 
the disease by being seated at a dinner table with a carrier. But it 
is a courtesy to all to let them know ahead of time." 

Last week. Barrows was "disinvited" to the premiere of Pe- 
dro Almodovar's film Labyrinth of Passion. Chip Duckett. a gay 
activist who organized the screening, wrote Barrows, "Do you 
warn guests if someone present has cancer? Or are you actually 
afraid that aids can be transmitted over the dinner table? Or are 
you planning on having unsafe sex during dessert?" Duckett has 
also demanded that the publisher, Doubleday, issue an apology 
and make a donation to an AiDS-education group. 

Barrows didn't return calls, but a Doubleday spokesman says, 
"We don't censor the opinions expressed in our authors* 
books — even when we don't agree with them." 

has been talking to editors at 
the paper about rejoining the 
staff, possibly as publisher of 
a magazine that VVS/'s parent 
company, Dow Jones, may 
start. Says the source, "It's 
not definite. A lot of people 
felt Pinkerton was demoted 
when he was moved from dep- 
uty managing editor to senior 
editor of finance and invest- 
ments. But they're in talks." 


|ohn Gotti isn't letting his up- 
coming trial cramp his style. 
The reputed head of the Gam- 
bino crime family, who is ac- 
cused of ordering the shooting 
of a union boss, has been seen 
feasting on pizza and $100-a- 
bottle champagne regularly at 
Wet Paint Cafe. The SoHo 
restaurant is owned by Gerard 
Renny, who grew up in Gotti's 
East New York neighborhood. 

"He's a very generous tip- 
per," says a restaurant insid- 
er, who adds that Gotti usu- 
ally leaves a $50 tip for a 
$130 meal. "The restaurant 
specializes in southwestern 
cuisine, but Gotti doesn't 
trust that sort of stuff. He al- 
ways orders Veuve Clicquot 
champagne and pizza with 
goat cheese, mozzarella, on- 
ion, and chile puree. He 
wears these expensive suits 
with white turtlenecks, and 
there's always a little may- 
hem while the waiters try lo 
get him to sit at their tables." 


Alfred A. Knopf had to move 
back the publication date of 
Wall Street Women when one 
of the people mentioned in the 
nonfiction work complained 
that her conversations with 
the author were off the rec- 

When Wasserstein Perella 
managing director Carol Eini- 
ger saw galleys of the book, 
she demanded that the pub- 
lisher and the author delete 
the three paragraphs that re- 
ferred to her. Knopf agreed to 
revise the section and moved 
the book's release date from 
january 8 to mid-February. 

Einiger wouldn't comment, 
but her gripe has baffled author 

Anne B. Fisher. "The parts 
about her were flattering." 
Fisher says, "but she's claiming 
she didn't want to be named or 
quoted. 1 don't do interviews 
like that. What's the point?" 
Fisher says Knopf has had to 
postpone her publicity tour be- 
cause the book won't be in the 
stores. "[Einiger's] little tem- 
per tantrum has really screwed 
things. From now on, I'm writ- 
ing fiction so that if a character 
gives me a hard time, I can kill 
them off." 


So it's not the discovery of a 
lost Mozart concerto. But 
WCBS staffers were surprised 
when they found that the sta- 
tion's theme for the Sunday- 
afternoon movie introduction 
was composed by Barry Mam 

"Barry worked here in the 
mail room twenty years ago.*" 
says a Channel 2 spokesman. 
"In his spare time, he wrote 
songs on the side. We don't 
owe him the royalties for all 
these years because we paid a 
flat fee back then. I don't 
know what it was." Manilow 
remembers, though: "It was 
$200. No, $100." 



Tracey Ullman has portrayed everything from a Valley Girl to a 
postal worker, and theater producer loseph Papp seems confident 
she'll have no trouble with the role of an Elizabethan shrew, says a 
source. Ullman, the star of her own Fox-network comedy show, is 
talking with Papp about playing Kate in Shakespeare's The Tam- 
ing of the Shrew this summer in Central Park. Alec Baldwin, 
who was in Married to the Mob and stars in the upcoming Hunt 
for Red October, may play Petruchio, says the source. 

A spokesman for Papp insists nothing has been decided, but 
the source says, "Ullman would be great, and Papp is very hot 
on her. She would really be a crowd-pleaser, too."

journalist. Most of his "questions" end 
with periods or exclamation points. But 
there are many paths to enlightenment, 
and in his first stab at an interview on his 
new Sunday-morning television show, 
Koch stumbled upon the central conun- 
drum of the Dinkins administration.* 

"Can I tell you what the difference be- 
tween us is?" Koch said to the new mayor 
(which sort of qualifies as a question, I 
suppose). "The New York Times had a 
very good article on it: They said Dinkins 
and Koch have basically the same philoso- 
phy, are doing the same things — only the 
way Dinkins does it is more acceptable 
because he comes over as a nicer guy." 

Dinkins. ever the gentleman, didn't 
challenge the assumption except to say — 
mildly — that they probably didn't agree 
on all things. But the question implicit in 
Koch's non-question echoes across the in- 
creasingly barren local political land- 
scape: Is Dinkins nothing more than a 
kinder, blander Koch? If not. what does 
he have in mind for the city? 

So far, no clues. Dinkins has made 
some solid appointments and shown a 
willingness to be responsible on the budg- 
et — but he hasn't had much to say about 
programs, priorities, initiatives. Unlike 
joe Fernandez, the new schools chancel- 
lor, Dinkins hasn't said, This is what's go- 
ing to be important over the next few 
years. This is how I'm going to be differ- 
ent from the last guy. This is where the 
city is going. Beyond vague policy "goals" 
he repeated in his inaugural address, Din- 
kins has put precious little meat and pota- 
toes on the table. 

To be fair, meat and potatoes isn't easy 
when the cupboard is bare. But a take- 
charge attitude, a desire to shake things up, 
to assert control, doesn't cost a cent. Clear- 
ly, the new mayor inherited a mess: Tax re- 
ceipts are plummeting. In the past few 
weeks, the projected budget gap for this fis- 
cal year (ending in |une) swelled from 
$150 million, to $250-, to $400 million or 
so. Next year will be more of the same — a 
billion-dollar deficit at least, pending union 
negotiations. Dinkins has trudged almost 
daily into the Blue Room (appropriately 
named) at City Hall to open a vein for the 
press and share the bad news. But with lit- 
tle else of import to announce, he risks be- 
coming the bad news bear. 

Koch did austerity funnier than any pol- 

'C'avcal emptor: I am a regular coconspirator on 
the show and confess lo oblique self-promotion here. 

NO WAY OUT: Dinkins has to cut corners to get more cops on the street. 

itician in memory— it was Borscht Belt 
belt-tightening (which didn't sit so well in 
poorer communities, where "austerity" is 
the difference between bread and crumbs, 
but did keep the rest of the city enter- 
tained). By contrast. City Hall reporters 
say Dinkins has taken on an increasingly 
glazed and somber aspect, as if he were 
being beaten over the head daily with a 

His budgetary prudence has bought 
him some time on the editorial pages and 
in the business community. "There was a 
great deal of concern about his ability to 
do the job," says a leading Wall Street ex- 
ecutive, "but Dinkins has cased a lot peo- 
ple's minds by showing sustained interest 
in the budget process right up front." 

But easing the minds of financiers was 
not exactly David Dinkins's mandate 
when he came to oflicc, and his prudent 
fiscal start may have negative political 
consequences in the real world. The 
"tough" decision mentioned most fre- 
quently by business types — to delay (in 
truth, to kill) the next Police Academy 
class — is probably the most damaging. 
"You don't cut cops." said one high-rank- 
ing elected official. "You can slash just 
about anything else. People don't follow 
the budget that closely, except for cops. 
They want more police, not less." 

That seems especially true now, as the 
city endures yet another skein of outra- 
geous crimes — random slashings in 
Greenwich Village, deadly purse snatch- 
ings, the rape and torture of a young girl 

in Harlem. "People are scared to death." 
says Tom Rcppelto of the Citizens Crime 
Commission. "I've been getting a lot of 
calls lately from people saying, 'That's it. 
I'm getting out of here.' We're in a lot of 
trouble if someone doesn't stand up pretty 
soon and say, 'Here is the plan to regain 
control of our streets.' " 

The man with the plan is expected to be 
Police Commissioner Lee Brown, who ar- 
rives this week from Houston (a fairly 
large city in Texas). Brown is Dinkins's 
most controversial appointment (New 
York, lanuary 22), and he may be where 
the new administration will stand or fall. 
The outlook isn't great: No matter how 
good Brown might be — and the mayor 
protests a bit too much by saying he's the 
best in the nation — he is walking into a 
near-impossible political situation. 

With a tighter budget and the prospeel 
of a smaller police force, the next commis- 
sioner is going to have to cut some corners 
to get a greater percentage of the cops on 
hand onto the streets. "On any given 
night," says one law-enforcement expert. 
I "half the cops in the city are answering 
i heart-attack calls and the other half are in 
court, waiting to give testimony." The fire 
department should be handling medical 
emergencies, and cops should be able to 
videotape their testimony. The Citizens 
Budget Commission recently recycled 
some other perennial productive ideas: 
one-man patrol cars, and shifting more 
cops out from behind desks onto the 
streets (the police have been resisting this 


I'hoioftraph by Steve Bcrman 'Mirage 

last since Fiorello La Guardia made it a 
major campaign issue in 1933). 

Dinkins, who won without the support 
of the police unions and therefore isn't be- 
holden to them, would be in great shape 
10 force these moves if he were using an 
NYPD good ol' boy (of any ethnic extrac- 
tion) as his front man. As it is, "Out of 
Town" Brown will probably serve as a 
lightning rod, an excuse for the cops to 
•tall and resist. 

The police are only the beginning of the 
new mayor's problems. He will have $250- 
million in hard cuts to make before |uly 1 
budget experts estimate that the other 
5150 million needed to close the gap can 
be gotten by slowing down expenditures 
jnd other abracadabra). He will have to 
make at least another $500 million in 
hard cuts next year — and raise properly 
axes an equal amount. (This, by the way, 
is a best case revenue scenario.) 

You start by cutting nonessentials like 
lOnsumer affairs, cultural affairs, parks, 
libraries, that sort of thing," says one 
budget expert. "You hope that the busi- 
ness community helps to pick up the 
>lack." But the cultural stuff is only a fly- 
speck on the city budget — even if you cut 
those programs in half (and no one is pro- 
posing that), the yield would be less than 
5200 million. Indeed, Draconian cuts in 
key areas seem inevitable — the streets will 
be dirtier and more dangerous; schools 
will have larger classes and less money for 
repairs; there will be fewer social workers 
to monitor child abuse; and hospital 
emergency rooms will be even more cha- 
otic. The city will become a less attractive 
place to live in or visit. More companies 
*ill leave town. The tax base will continue 
io shrink. 

Given all that, what can Dinkins do 
about it? Not very much. But to begin 
with, he can stop moping around and start 
racking heads. Among the heads to be 
-racked are those belonging to the toads 
and rodents of the City Council who've 
v oted themselves pay raises while Rome is 
burning. Other crackable heads include 
'hose of the Charter-reform luminaries, 
*hose handiwork means the city will be 
"mandated to spend tens of millions of dol- 
lars on make-work paper-pushing — a 
mini-budget office, a "public informa- 
tion" commission (with a paid staff direc- 
tor, counsel, staff . . . and paid members, 
deluding — oh, please — a journalist), and 
other unspeakable goo-goo nonsense. 

If Dinkins wants to impress some folks 
who are not financiers or editorial writers, 
* might take a page from Richard Nix- 
Ws book. He might simply refuse to fund 
'He Charter atrocities, the Board of Exam- 
iners (which wastes $6.5 million each 
year duplicating the teacher-certification 
process), and — as a general rule — all oth- 
er commissions that divert money into the 
P°ckets of navel-gazers and away from 
'he streets. ■■

ROBERT CAMPEAU: A harsh fight for control. 


we've all read lately about the wide- 
screen waste and foolishness that has ac- 
companied Robert Campeau's failed foray 
into retailing — the billions of dollars in 
bank loans and junk bonds that have been 
squandered in Campeau's bizarre three- 
year drive to build the world's biggest de- 
partment-store chain; the workers in 
stores like Bloomingdale's who've lost 
their jobs in "cost-cutting" moves de- 
signed to help Campeau scrape up the 
cash to keep making payments on his stu- 
pefying mountain of debt. 

But behind the drawn curtains of Rob- 
ert Campeau's private life in Canada, an 
equally fierce — yet far less widely report- 
ed — struggle has been raging, with Cam- 

peau locked in a ruinous family feud over 

control of the empire he has built. Dc- 1 tains that the stock in the family trust nev- 

talk about the 
dangers inherent 
in leveraged 
buy-outs of all 
sorts. Yet the 
real problem 
may simply have 
been Campeau 
himself. The 
feud, now head- 
ing into court, 
suggests that 
even the inter- 
ests of his own 
children seem 
ultimately to 
have counted for 
little as this 66- 
year-old eighth- 
grade dropout, 
tormented by 
feelings of dis- 
crimination as a 
member of Can- 
ada's ethnic 
French minority, 
went about 
proving himself to the world. 

Neither Campeau nor his children 
would comment publicly on their quarrel. 
But through court documents and inter- 
views with lawyers and other family mem- 
bers involved in the case, a picture of 
Robert Campeau emerges. It is a picture 
of a father too eager to strengthen his vot- 
ing control over Campeau Corporation in 
hopes of impressing bankers backing his 
pay-any-price takeover bid for Federated 
Department Stores two years ago. His 
chosen maneuver: what some family 
members insist is an attempt to take back 
voting rights over a family trust contain- 
ing more than 4 million shares of Cam- 
peau stock bequeathed more than a quar- 
ter-century earlier to several of his 

Through his lawyers, Campeau main- 

scribed variously in the press as every- 
thing from a brilliant manager to "eccen- 
tric." "mercurial," "restless," and 
"volatile," Campeau, it turns out, de- 
ceived his own wife and children. In the 
losing light to prop up his edifice of de- 
partment-store debt, Campeau's private 
world of deception at last became entan- 
gled in his public maneuvers as a wheeler- 
dealer. Whether or not that entanglement 
played a key role in helping Campeau pur- 
sue his retailing dreams, it certainly seems 
to have caused pain for all concerned. 
The Campeau fiasco has set off a lot of 

er had independent voting rights in the 
first place. But apparently neither the 
trust agreement nor the stock certificates 
say anything of the sort, leaving Campeau 
to contend that the lack of voting rights 
was part of a long-standing "implied ar- 
rangement." In any case, his attempts to 
get a court to recognize that arrangement 
have tied up the shares in litigation, pre- 
venting them from being sold, even as 
their value began to collapse. 

The tale begins in 1942, when, at the 
age of nineteen, young Bob Campeau mar- 
ried an Ontario textile worker named 

Clauda Lcroux. She bore him a daughter, 
Rachelle, now 43. Then, faced with Clau- 
da's apparent inability to bear more chil- 
dren, the couple adopted jacques. now 
37, and Daniel, now 30. 

Meanwhile, as a Canadian home 
builder, Campeau was becoming success- 
ful beyond his dreams, and in 1961 he set 
up a family trust to provide for his chil- 
dren. Yet, unknown to this entire first 
family, Campeau was keeping a leggy, 
German-born mistress. Use Luebbert, 
across town. Eventually, they had three 
children together. Wben lacques learned 
of the deception, he was furious and later 
told a Toronto newspaper, "As a boy 
growing up, I assumed my father was very 
busy. He'd fly home, stay with us a few 
days, then leave." 

Eventually. Clauda discovered Bob's lit- 
tle secret. In 1969, she filed for divorce, 
and shortly thereafter, Campeau married 
Use. In 1980. Clauda died of cancer, and. 
according to a book just published by 
Doubleday Canada. Ltd. — Campeau. the 
Building of an Empire, by Michael Babad 
and Catherine Mulroney — lacques quit 
his job as a young executive at Campeau 
Corporation, stopped talking with his fa- 
ther, and stalked off in a huff. 

Over time, Bob and Use began to 
emerge as Canada's official high livers. 
Bob traded in his toupee for a transplant, 
got a place near Palm Beach to go with the 
Norman-style chateau in Toronto, and 
soon was hopping about in a company- 
owned Gulfstream jet. 

And what of the kids from the days 
with Clauda? Under the terms of the 1 96 1 
family-trust indenture, the children were 
each to receive their shares of Campeau 
common on their thirty-fifth birthdays. In 
1982, Rachelle got her block, but. accord- 
ing to her lawyer, Guy Pratle, she was 
promptly urged by her father to sign away 
the voting rights. She steadfastly declined. 
In December 1987, lacques turned 35 
and. according to Robert Campeau's law- 
yer, Robert Brownlie. immediately filed 
papers to receive his shares. 

Though Brownlie says the shares of Ra- 
chelle, jacques, and the other participants 
in the family trust totaled less than 5 per- 
cent of all stock outstanding, the shares 
had traditionally been voted in line with 
the desires of Robert Campeau, who alone 
held nearly 50 percent of Campeau's 
stock. This, of course, gave him effective 
control of Campeau Corporation. But 
with his estranged son lacques now de- 
manding his shares from the trust. Rob- 
ert's control of Campeau Corporation no

longer seemed certain. What if Jacques 
sold his stock as soon as he got it? — as he 
apparently intended to do. What if Ra- 
chelle saw Jacques get away with it and 
decided to do the same? Where would 
Robert Campeau be then? 

More troubling still, these questions 
were popping up at the worst possible 
moment: At the start of 1988, Robert 
Campeau was preparing to embark on 
what was destined to become his atten- 
tion-getting, sky's-the-limit bidding war 
for control of Federated. It was a war that 
couldn't be started — let alone fought to a 
successful end — without Campeau's un- 
questioned control over his own 

To remove any doubt, Campeau and his 
lawyers came up with what looked to be a 
clever move: They'd file suit to block 
transfer of the shares from the trust to 
lacques until he agreed in writing that vot- 
ing rights remained with the father. This 
way, it would take a long time — years, 
perhaps — before lacques could even get 
his hands on the shares, let alone sell them 
if he ever prevailed in court. 

Rachelle Campeau's lawyer, Guy 
Pratte, says that during a deposition on 
the matter last autumn, Campeau 
' seemed to be saying that sometimes it 
was very important from a business per- 
spective to be able to prove to a potential 
lender that he had 60 percent of the vot- 
ing rights." The deposition testimony has 
yet to be released, and Pratte is obviously 
a biased source. But his statement was 
substantiated by Robert Brownlie, who 
said last week that a desire to reassure 
bankers of Campeau's control over the 
company was "one of the reasons" for fil- 
ing suit against lacques. 

The filing of that suit, and, more recent- 
ly, the filing of a similar one against Ra- 
chelle. may indeed have bolstered the con- 
fidence of bankers backing the Federated 
deal. If so, the irony is exquisite, since the 
wildly leveraged takeover that resulted is 
what has devastated Campeau Corpora- 
tion itself. 

Now, with their shares unsellable until 
the issue of voting rights is cleared up in 
court, Rachelle and lacques have been left 
to watch helplessly as Campeau Corpora- 
tion's collapsing stock price has virtually 
wiped out their inheritances. In little more 
than the three months since Campeau's 
cash woes surfaced last September, the 
company's stock — and thus the personal 
fortunes of the children — have dropped 
by more than 90 percent, reducing inheri- 
tances that last autumn were worth $40- 
million or more apiece to present levels of 
less than $4 million each.

blends in with the young cast 
of actors who are taping 
Women and Wallace for 
American Playhouse. The 
difference is that Sherman 
wrote the play two and a half 
years ago, when he was 
eighteen. He's the youngest 
author to have his work taped 
for the series. 

A seriocomic exploration of 
the suicide of Sherman's 
mother, when he was six, 
Women and Wallace (|anuary 
3 1 at 9 p.m. on Channel 1 3) 
won the Young Playwrights 
Festival in 1 988 — following 

Sherman's Serendipity and 
Serenity, which was a runner- 
up the previous year. Women 
and Wallace was then staged 
by Playwrights Horizons. 
Heady stuff for a teenager: 
The first reading was directed 
by lames Lapine, and the Off 
Broadway and American 
Playhouse productions by 
estimable television and stage 
director Don Scardino (A Few 
Good Men). 

Offers have been pouring in 
since Sherman was listed in 
the Times as a winner of the 
increasingly high-profile 
competition. But the 
playwright — who has been 
writing since he got a 
typewriter from his father at

of Women and

would be happy 
with," he says. Of 
course, he was 
tempted: "They 
say things like 
'Didn't you go to

Didn't you see 
those huge 
images?' They 
offer you the 
chance of 
becoming pari of 
that world. But 
you get out the 
door, breathe 
some air, and you 
say. 'No, they 
don't know this play.' " 
But Sherman was just 
acting on some sage advice. 
After winning the award in 
1988, he'd written to Stephen 
Sondheim, thanking him for 
the inspiration of Sweeney 
Todd. "Nothing enhances a 
reputation as much as saying 
no," Sondheim wrote back. 

Currently, Sherman, a 
senior at Bennington College, 
is working on a "bittersweet" 
romantic screenplay ("like 
early Truffaut") and on a play 
involving a stand-up comic in 
New lersey. The tragic aspects 
of Sherman's life and work 
are always mixed with 
comedy, even in Women and 
Wallace, a fact some 
audiences have found 
unsettling. Sherman's 
attitude, however, is 
characteristically confident 
and lucid. "To make a work 
simply serious is the same as 
making something entirely 
out of jokes," he says. "Life 
has humor in it. Funerals, 
believe me, have moments 
of humor in them. And that's 
the life force that you 
look for." SoniaTaitz

MR. PEEPERS'S NIGHTS: Catching the Silver Star 


the three-hour delay because of 
equipment problems. Then the truck 
bringing air compressors. Finally, 
there were men crawling on the wings 
tapping and swabbing at the oil leak. 
"I'm getting off," I said rather loudly as 
the engines revved. I walked twelve rows back to where my 
ward was sitting with a friend. 
"I'm going. It's not safe," I said. 

"Look, everyone else is sitting here calmly. No one else is 
getting off. We're not going with you." 

At this point, I believe, many uniforms appeared around me 
and the chief female uniform glided quickly from first class. 

"You're not a prisoner," she said. I tried to tug at my ward. 
And then I sat down and gave 
up. The people who had been 
staring hard avoided my eyes. 

"That was better than 
television," a college kid said 
to my friend. 

Tm taking the train when I 
go home," I had told Robert 
Merrill as we waited for our 
bags to pop out onto the belt 
in Florida and studied the four 
token bags they send out to 
fool people. The Fiend of the 
Eastern skies had arranged for 
all of my bags to cruise out last 
to punish me. 

A few days later, I was 
buying two first-class tickets 
for about $700 at the West 
Palm Beach train station, the 
kind of station where everyone 
•'■ aits in the car until the last 
possible minute. 

Like an apparition from the 
other Palm Beach, a southern 
woman appeared wearing a 
good suit and new Chanel shoes. She went right up to a window 
where several people were waiting and started to chirp 
questions to the Amtrak man. 

"Oh, is this a line-uh?" she asked us. "It's been so long-uh 
since ah've taken the train-uh." 

"Is it safe?" I said to the Amtrak man. "I'm traveling with a 

Well, what could go wrong on a train? What? What? 

I immediately thought of Hercule Poirot forcing open the 
compartment door and Richard Widmark with his head 
slumped to one side and a trickle of blood from his mean 
mouth. Or let's just say a pair of drunken cracker louts were out 
shooting pigs one night and stalled their pickup truck right 
across the tracks so that the Silver Star, going nearly 100 miles 
per hour, would crash into it. 

Yes, I was riding the Silver Star. A good name, in fact the 
very name (ill Clayburgh gave me when we played together as 
children. There were two men to help us board. There was a 
sleeping-car porter who had been on the trains for 26 years and 
an English chappie, one of the new breed, here to give me 
tickets for four vile meals and to make announcements of 

historical interest in the middle of the night about Civil War 
battles and such. 

His first, almost immediate, announcement was that the 
Silver Star had hit a pickup truck left abandoned on the tracks. 
The train stopped. The lights went out on our microwaved 
vegetarian lasagna. 

"They have to cut the train from the truck," someone said. 
There was a faint smell of burning and we were told to sit still 
and not smoke, for diesel fuel had spilled and they had to hose 
it off the tracks. 

Yet somehow, this was a good, clean, ground-type accident. 
We felt nothing, not even a bump. No one was hurt, not even a 
pig. Around me in the darkening wattage I felt a wash of 
fellowship. A girls' champion soccer team from Maryland 
began a cheer for my ward. 

Everyone on this train was 
scared of planes. They were 
neurotic or broke or romantic 
or old and not in a hurry to get 
anywhere much. There were 
fools and losers and cowards 
and those who had memories 
of train whistles in the night. 
There were those who had 
seen movies of wagons-lits and 
Orient Expresses and cheery 
chefs hoisting hampers of fresh 
oysters aboard. People who 
still hoped to have an 
adventure took trains. 


removing the rest of the 
pickup truck from the 
engine, we returned to 
the dining car. "I want to get 
off the train," I said, but the 
conductor told me that 
Sebring was not a place to 

"It's a good thing there 
wasn't a fatality, because then you have to get the county 
coroner and on Saturday night before New Year's Eve. . . ." 

Outside in the Florida dark, on the road next to us, the cars 
sped by. Then one car left the highway and drove up on the rut 
next to the train. 

"We're in the dark," said C. Gable, the chef who had made 
all the brown and gray food. 

Police and fire trucks, their red lights spinning, stitched down 
both sides of the train, and the jovial British fellow told us again 
not to smoke. The lights, which had sunk to about twenty 
watts, went out altogether. 

"Well, now we're locked on the damn train," said a voice 
from the next compartment. 

"It's time for that little bottle the trainman gave me," I said 
to my ward as 1 unscrewed the complimentary Fetzer. 
"This is worse than the way down," said a woman. 
"Would it be decadent to ask when the bar car opens?" said 
a man named Arnie. 
"Can we get off?" I asked the English fellow. 
"Someone else just asked me that," he said. The train began 
to move past lines of fire trucks and police cars with their

twirling red lights now stilled and camera crews and a TV girl 
in a green sweater doing her stand-up for the local news in a 
pool of klieg lights — all the signs of a real train wreck. We were 
moving slow, using the rear engine to get to jacksonville, where 
we could get a new engine for the front. 

Outside in the dawn, lacy black trees stood in a thick white 
mist under one of those fiery Florida skies streaked with gold 
and red and lavender. Cruel skies when you are old. 

"It's like a video on fast-forward," said my ward when we 
speeded up. 

"They should be prosecuted to the fullest," 1 said, talking of 
the pig hunters at breakfast. 

"They never learn, you can't beat the train," said a waiter 
ducking under a plastic lei and a swag that said happy new 

The pines got taller and there were low wooden houses with 
trailers planted like an afterthought alongside, houses that 
looked like they were held up by their brick chimneys, stores 
that sold hog jowls and chitlins, and dogs with long plumcy 
tails. This is how people who live near the tracks live, a South 
invisible from the skies. 

The little saggy houses probably looked cozy only from the 
outside, but many were painted a pale hopeful green. Many 
stood on concrete blocks. Many had ladders propped against 
the sides in the midst of some repair that could never quite get 

finished. There were trees growing from water, car graveyards, 
tiny churches. Once, around the Carolinas, we cut through a 
rich area, past a golf club and stores with French names. 

The railroad man who had taken up our beds refused to take 
one down though we were now deep into our second night. The 
sink collapsed. Then I flapped and waved and produced cards 
of identity like a real New Yorker until the Brit came round 
with lots of handshakes. He drew back his empty palm 
bewildered. The bed came down. 

people of my breed, where someone gives the apartment 
and car and someone else gives the cabana. How could I 
say no? The cheapness of it all had drawn me in. 
"You piece of s — ," I heard in the next compartment, and the 
couple next door began that very last long fight before divorce, 
the one where all the unsaid is said with bitter hate and 
language. We heard all their dark places and bad secrets, and so 
did the rest of the railroad car. I covered my ward's ears, 
waiting for violence. 
"Hey, I've got a child in here," 1 said finally. 
After 33 hours, the Silver Star slid into Penn Station at 3:30 
a.m. on New Year's Day in the rain. A man was waiting. 
"Eight and a half hours on the plane back," he said. 
"A lifetime on the Silver Star," I answered. 


Playing the China Card 

It's a match made in 
marketing Heaven. Every 
year, the coldest weeks on 
the Atlantic City 
boardwalk coincide with the 
fifteen-day Chinese 
New Year celebration. 
The battle for 
customers accelerates, 
with entertainment and 
high rollers flown in 
from the Far East as 
casinos vie for a piece 
of the lucrative New 
York Chinatown trade. 

"It's a custom for 
Chinese to gamble on 
New Year," says May 
Chow, whose Golden 
Express travel agency 
books day-bus tour 
packages for 
Chinatown patrons of 
Bally's Grand casino. 
"The idea is it's an 
omen if you lose — you 
know you have to be 
careful for the rest of the year. 
If you win. then it's supposed 
to mean you'll be lucky " Last 
year. Golden Express sent 
twenty busloads of day- 
trippers down to Atlantic City 

for the first day of the 
holiday; Chow expects to do 
even better this year. 

The year of the horse 
gallops in on (anuary 27. the 

start of the Chinese lunar 
calendar and fifteen days of 
determined celebration. 
"They don't come to have 
fun; they come to play," says 
Frank Hsu. Merv Griffin's 

Resorts vice-president for 
Oriental marketing. "We did 
a survey last year. The 
Chinese customer spends 
most of his time in the casino, 
not sightseeing. And he 
brings between $500 
and $600 in his 

That's well above the 
industry average — 
about $ 1 00 — for day- 
bus visitors. According 
to Hsu, a drop of $7- 
million to $8 million is 
expected for the two- 
week holiday. 

Asian customers are 
so prized that casinos 
frequently arrange 
special junkets, flying 
in gamblers from as far 
away as Hong Kong 
and Taipei: The idea is 
to attract Chinatown 
day-trippers by 
stocking the house with 
Chinese faces. And to beat the 
competition for the walk-in 
crowd, several casinos are 
spending big bucks to bring in 
top-flight entertainment from 
the Far East. 

For non-Chinese-speaking 
New Yorkers, the best show 
may be at Caesars casino, 
which is presenting four 
performances by Taiwan's 
national acrobatic troupe. The 
90-minute spectacular 
features human "tigers" 
leaping through rings of fire 
and razor-sharp knives. 

On the final weekend of 
Chinese New Year, two 
casinos schedule 2 a.m. 
shows. Bally's offers 
performances by Hong Kong 
singing star Teresa Carpio 
(she's Chinese-Filipino), and 
TropWorld will import Sally 
Yeh, another Hong Kong 
siren. "Every year the 2 a.m. 
shows are the most popular." 
says Hsu. "It's the perfect 
time. Most Chinatown 
restaurants close at ten or 
eleven, and it's a two-and-a- 
half-hour drive to Atlantic 
City on the bus. That gives the 
customer an hour or so to 
play before taking a break 
with a show — then he goes 
back to the casino." 

And back to work.

dei&h of 




the crime scene, on 
81st Street in Benson- 
hurst, Detective Rich- 
ard Gordon could see 
that he had another 
execution on his 
hands — a mob rubout or a drug deal 
gone bad. It was just past eleven on 
the night of November 17, 1989, 
maybe ten minutes after the shooting 
had stopped, and the EMS teams were al- 
ready working to save the two victims. 

One of them had a chance: a young 
man named loseph Sclafani, who'd been 
found in the gutter with three slugs in his 
belly and was now being stowed in the 
back of an EMS truck. The other victim — 
also young, but with a tangled red beard 



from a shaggy punk (1979) to a steroids freak (1989). 

and the flabby body of a lapsed weight 
lifter — was in far worse shape. He'd been 
found in convulsions, sprawled across the 
front seat of a gray 1982 Pontiac, with 
eight bullet holes in his head and body. 
Now he was encased in an inflatable pres- 
sure suit used to stabilize acute-trauma 
victims. "I couldn't get a good look at 

ried no I.D." As they put him in the 
JB truck to follow his friend to Cone) 
^ Island Hospital, Gordon's team 
canvassed for witnesses and started 
reconstructing the crime. 

With Sclafani at the wheel and 
the bearded man beside him. the 
Pontiac had come to a stop a few 
minutes before eleven in front of a 
brick building at 1803 8 1st Street 
A blue van pulled up beside the car. and 
the bearded man rolled down his window 
lust then, a figure rose from a park bench 
across the street, pulled out a .45 auto- 
matic, and fired at the Pontiac. The two 
men in the van produced 9-mm. and .380- 
caliber semi-automatic pistols and 
pumped sixteen rounds into the car. Scla-

The scene of agent Everett Hatcher's death in Staten Island on February 28, 1989. 

fani managed to open his 
door, roll onto the sidewalk, and get off 
two shots before the van roared away. The 
bearded man never even got his gun out of 
his waistband. Someone came out to help, 
and Sclafani pointed to the man inside the 
car and said, "That's my friend Gus." 

Gus. The instant Gordon heard that 
name, he thought of the one Gus every- 
one — cops and criminals alike — had been 
hunting for almost nine months: Costa- 
bile "Gus" Farace, the smiling, psycho- 
pathic Mafia cocaine cowboy who was the 
only suspect in the murder of federal drug 
agent Everett Hatcher. 

The shooting death of Hatcher, a Drug 
Enforcement Administration undercover 
man. on an empty Staten Island road one 
night last February (New York. March 27, 
1989) had been a touchstone event in 
America's war on drugs — and a grisly 
reminder of who was winning that war. 
The murder signaled a change in the 
conventions of mob behavior: The old 
rule that wiseguys don't kill agents 
seemed out the window. Hatcher's death 
brought a wave of media attention, 
stirring speeches, even a visit to the 
DEA's New York headquarters by Presi- 
dent Bush. The case had everything but a 
defendant — Gus Farace refused to be 

steroids freak with a neck 
like a Verrazano Bridge 
suspension cable, Farace, 
then 28, became the target 
of one of the most intensive 
and frustrating manhunts 
in U.S. history, spreading to fifteen states 
and the Cayman Islands while Farace hid 
a few miles from his Staten Island home. 
To force the mobsters of Brooklyn and 
Staten Island to give up Farace, a 500- 
man federal task force hounded the Bo- 
nanno- and Colombo-family crime crews 
that Farace had worked with. Agents ha- 
rassed them in every way they could: con- 
ducting 24-hour surveillance, raiding so- 
cial clubs and bookie joints, and arresting 
mobsters — some two dozen in all — on 
whatever charges they could come up 
with. The idea was to cut into mob prof- 
its, reduce the number of people willing to 
help Farace, and let the wiseguys know 
that the pressure wouldn't let up until he 
was caught. 

But he wasn't caught — on the night of 
Hatcher's murder, Farace hid in one 
Staten Island house while agents checked 
the place across the street. As the months 
went by, agents now believe, he moved to 
Brooklyn and then the Bronx, and from 
there to Yonkers, Brewster, and finally a 
studio apartment on Manhattan's Upper 
East Side. 

Along the way, the search became a 

competition between law-enforcement of- 
ficers and the soldiers of at least three or- 
ganized-crime families who wanted Fara- 
ce as much as the authorities did — not 
because of moral outrage over what he 
had done but because he had become pro- 
foundly bad for business. The cops and 
robbers looking for Farace tailed and in- 
terrogated so many of the same Farace 
helpers, their paths crossed and re- 
crossed so many times, that the search 
took on an almost farcical cast. And al- 
ways, Farace seemed to elude both sides. 

As his mob help ran out, Farace, the 
onetime class flirt of I.S. 34, on Staten Is- 
land, depended on the kindness of women 
and carried on at least two affairs — one of 
them with the daughter of his Bonanno- 
crime-family boss, who became so en- 
raged that Farace would involve family 
that he redoubled his efforts to get him. 
Eventually, the search for Farace touched 
off a wiseguy civil war that pitted mobster 
against mobster — those who wanted him 
dead threatening and even murdering 
their colleagues for helping him. 

Farace spent his last two months holed 
up on East 85th Street in Manhattan. 
While cops and mobsters hunted for him. 
he lounged in front of a television set. 
cooked heavy Italian food, snorted co- 
caine with women who had no idea who 
he was, dyed his hair and his beard, and —

steroids — watched his beloved muscles

sag and his potbelly blossom. As his des- 
peration mounted and his money and net- 
work of helpers ran out, the only remain- 
ing question was which side would get to 
him first. 

Now, on a cold street in Brooklyn, De- 
tective Gordon wondered if the other 
team had finally won. "I got the hint," 
says Gordon, "and decided to ride to the 
hospital to take a closer look." 

When he got there, Gordon says, "the 
individual had expired, so I gained entry 
to the morgue and had him taken from the 
refrigerator." He'd been told what to look 
for: the scarred valley on Farace's left 
forearm where the muscle had 
been ripped out in a car crash; 
the tattoos on his huge upper 
arms — a panther's head, a red 
rose above the words mom & 
dad. But Gordon didn't need 
any of that. "I unwrapped the 
paper shroud covering the 
body," he says, "naturally start- 
ing at the top. And as soon as I 
saw the face, I knew it was Gus. 
Bearded or not, I'd know that 
face anywhere. Any cop would. 
We've all seen that face in our 

informer or an agent — "He just knew that 
Everett was trying to do him," says the 
source. "So he started getting hinky with 
Everett — not calling him, not returning 
his calls." Things between them were so 
strained that Hatcher's wife, Mary Jane, 
begged him not to meet Farace that night. 

But Hatcher decided to go through with 
the meeting — and from the outset things 
went horribly wrong. After a van carrying 
Farace and another man pulled up beside 
Hatcher's Buick Regal, three federal back- 
up teams watched the two vehicles head 
off together and heard Hatcher say they 
were going to a diner. Then all three 



eyes set deep be- 
neath a heavy 
brow, a hooked 
nose leading to 
twisted lips 
stretched across 
teeth that were too big and too 
white — is the last thing Everett 
Hatcher saw before he died. The 
agent met Farace at 9 p.m. last 
February 28 on a desolate over- 
pass near the southern tip of Stat- 
en Island. Hatcher, 46, a straight- 
arrow Vietnam veteran, former 
schoolteacher, and father of two, 
was posing as a drug-dealing 
Army officer and trying to further 
two investigations — one of cor- 
ruption in the state corrections 
system's work-release program, 
and the other of a Florida-to-Sta- 
ten Island cocaine ring run by Bonanno- 
crime-family captain Gerard Chilli, 55. Fa- 
race, a dealer in the Chilli crew who'd spent 
seven years in prison for the 1979 murder 
of a black teenager, was Hatcher's way into 
both investigations. 

Hatcher had made several buys from 
Farace in the past, but the relationship 
was going sour. There's evidence Farace 
didn't like blacks — he'd killed one al- 
ready — and Hatcher was a black man. 
Worse, Farace was getting suspicious. 
"Some prison buddies had told Gus that 
Everett was dirty," says one source. Fara- 
ce didn't know whether Hatcher was an

arace's seven years in prison turned

teams somehow lost sight of Hatcher in 
traffic — and his radio transmitter went 
dead. After an hour's vain search, they 
found him back at the place where he'd 
met Farace — but now Hatcher was 
slumped behind the wheel of his car with 
the engine running, his foot on the brake, 
and three bullets in his head and body. 

The search for Farace began as soon as 
Hatcher's body was discovered. As one 
team of cops and agents worked the crime 
scene, other teams began raiding the 
houses, bars, and social clubs where they 
thought Farace might be hiding. They in- 
terrogated his pregnant wife, Antoinette, 

and his widowed mother, Mary; both de- 
nied knowing anything. They looked for 
Gerry Chilli, who was in Florida. They vis- 
ited Chilli's daughter, Margaret "Babe" 
Scarpa, a beefy, 36-year-old frosted- 
blonde mother of three who was having 
an affair with Farace. And they tried to 
find Gus's cousin Dominick Farace but 
failed to track him down. They kicked in 
doors, ransacked houses, tried to bully 
mobsters into telling them where Farace 
was. But no one would. 

Around 4 a.m. that night, a defense law- 
yer called the office of Andrew Maloney, 
the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District 
of New York, and said that 
Dominick Farace was ready to 
surrender. But after Dominick 
came in, he wouldn't talk — even 
though some witnesses were say- 
ing they'd seen Gus and Domi- 
nick together in the van that day. 
"The witnesses had seen them 
places where it made no sense 
for them to be," says a source. 
"It was confusing — we had them 
with Hatcher at Gus's house, 
and in other places far from the 
crime scene. Our heads were 

mied. "There was 
no physical evi- 
dence," says New 
York DEA chief 
Robert Stutman. 
"No gun, no eye- 
witness — if Gus had turned him- 
self in then, we'd have had a 
tough time convicting him." 

A grand jury was empaneled, 
and Assistant U.S. Attorney 
Charles Rose, a flamboyant and 
effective prosecutor, began in- 
troducing them to the case — 
waving the dead agent's badge 
before their eyes, acquainting 
them with the killer. Stutman, 
meanwhile, assigned 400 people 
to the case; another 100 FBI 

agents and policemen rounded 

out the task force. They'd search 
any place the tipsters said Farace might 
be: a New Jersey horse farm, Brooklyn 
betting parlors, Chilli's haunts in Florida, 
the beaches of Grand Cayman Island, 
weight-lifting shops upstate. "Every guy 
in the world who ever bulked himself up 
got pulled in," says Stutman. 

Kevin Gallagher, Stutman 's deputy and 
the DEA agent in charge of the search, be- 
lieved that a street punk like Farace 
lacked the sophistication and resources to 
run far. He decided to concentrate on the 
New York area. But despite all the raids — 
and the 24-hour surveillance of Farace's 
relatives and associates — Gus was no- 

Copyrighted mater 

where to be found. And no one would 

"Word came right down from |ohn 
Gotti himself." says one man associated 
with the Staten Island mob. " 'Don't co- 
operate with the Feds. If you tell them 
anything, you're not a wiseguy.' " 

As a result, Staten Island got caught in a 
vise between the investigators and the mob- 
sters — most of whom didn't know where 
Farace was but wouldn't have told if they 
did. "A lot of innocent people got caught 
up in this thing." says one cop who took 
part in the searches. "Constant raids and 
ransackings and surveillance — whole neigh- 
borhoods victims of domestic terrorism." 

The strategy was to cut off as many of 
Farace's avenues of assistance as possible, 
reducing the number of people he could 
trust — by either arresting them or watch- 
ing them so closely they couldn't help 
him — so he'd turn to someone he couldn 't 
trust, someone who'd turn him in for the 
$280,000 in reward money. 

The agents and cops did background 
checks on all of Farace's friends and close 
associates and tried to speak to everyone 


was making another name for himself. He 
belonged to a gang called the Bay Boys, 
old-fashioned bullies who liked to intimi- 
date, pick fights, and break heads. "He 
had a Jekyll and Hyde thing going," says 
one Staten Islander. "Nice and polite to 
adults, and a terror to his peers." 

Farace soon began spending time with 
an even tougher crew, led by his cousin 
Greg Scarpa |r. Eight years older than 
Gus and the son of a Colombo-crime-fam- 
ily soldier, Scarpa was heading into the 
narcotics trade with a crew of his own, 
and he took Gus with him. Gus started 
drinking heavily, smoking pot, and eating 
Quaaludes; he dropped out of school in 
the tenth grade. He was big but not yet 
brawny, disheveled and heavily stoned— a 
mop of dark curls over eyes that seemed 
always at half-mast. He helped out at his 
father's fruit stand, but his real career 
path was leading elsewhere. 

In January 1977, the sixteen-year-old 
Farace was pulled over for reckless 
driving; he was searched, and cops found 
a gun. Three weeks later, he was arrested 
again, this time for forgery, but he

who had ever known the man, so that no 
one who might help him would be over- 
looked. "Some of them were terrified by 
this man," says agent |ohn Coleman, who 
ran the FBI's investigation. "Too scared to 
talk. But slowly, we developed a complete 
portrait of this guy — and found he'd been 
a dirtbag from day one." 

lyn on |une 21, 1960. and I 
moved with his family to 1 
the Princes Bay section of 
Staten Island five years 
later. His parents ran the 
G&S fruit-and-vegetable 
market on Hylan Boulevard, but his fa- 
ther, Gus senior, was no simple produce 
man: Both he and his brother Frank Fara- 
ce were fringe members of a Colombo- 
family gambling ring. 

As a child, Gus was a clown — a poor 
student, popular and gregarious. He 
played Peewee football in Wolfe's Pond 
Park and was voted "class flirt" in the 
eighth grade. But by the time he entered 
Tottenville High School, in 1975, Farace 

avoided prison because of his youth. A 
year later, he got into a serious auto acci- 
dent. His teeth were broken, his left arm 
torn up. While he recuperated, he courted 
and married a Staten Island girl named 
Diane Zwiren, and his life remained rela- 
tively quiet — until he committed his first 

On the night of October 8, 1 979, Farace 
cruised into Greenwich Village for some 
gay-bashing with an old Bay Boys buddy 
named Mark Granato and two other 
friends. They were drunk, and at the Silver 
Dollar on Christopher Street they got 
drunker and met two black teenagers. Ste- 
phen Charles and Thomas Moore. Outside. 
Farace and his friends forced the two into 
the gang's car and drove them to Wolfe's 
Pond Park on Staten Island, where Farace 
had played Peewee football. In the park, Fa- 
race forced Charles to perform oral sex on 
one of the gang, beat him with a piece of 
driftwood, and then shot him and left him 
for dead. Mark Granato was working over 
the other man. Thomas Moore, but Moore 
scrambled into the pond and swam away. 
Farace aimed the car headlights across the 

water, searching for his quarry, but Moore 
escaped and got help. Farace was arrested 
and pled guilty to manslaughter in the First 
degree. In 1980, at age 20, he was sen- 
tenced to 7 to 21 years in prison. Diane 
Zwiren filed for divorce and tried to forget 
she had ever known a Gus Farace. 

Farace's years in the 
state prison system — that 
finishing school for socio- 
paths — transformed him. 
As he bounced from El- 
mira to Great Meadow 
to Green Haven, he 
cleaned up his appearance and honed his 
criminal skills. He kept his hair neatly 
trimmed and got his damaged left arm re- 
paired and his smashed teeth capped with 
a new set of huge white choppers. To 
compensate for his bad arm, he passed his 
time in the weight room, using barbells 
and anabolic steroids, watching his body 
grow until his six-foot-three-inch frame 
had bulged to more than 220 pounds — he 
was a hulking, toothy ghoul. 

While dealing drugs to other convicts, 
Farace seemed a model prisoner: He at- 
tended Alcoholics Anonymous meetings 
and Roman Catholic Mass, ran the Holy 
Name Society, got his high-school diplo- 
ma, and took classes in lawn care and hor- 
ticulture. In 1986, he was transferred to 
Arthur Kill Penitentiary on Staten Island. 

His father died the next year, and in Ar- 
thur Kill he found a new father figure — 
Gerry Chilli, a cigar-chomping Bonanno 
captain doing time for credit-card fraud 
and, agents believe, directing one of Staten 
Island's biggest coke rings from his cell. Fa- 
race became Chilli's bodyguard and joined 
his narcotics crew. Farace also became 
friendly with Chilli's daughter. Babe, who 
visited often and shared his interest in bo- 
dybuilding. Babe was married to a mobster 
named Alfred Scarpa, who would be 
gunned down in a Manhattan bar in 1988. 

In Arthur Kill, Farace also met a man 
who called himself Lieutenant Colonel 
Dennis Hatcher and said he was visiting an 
Army buddy who was behind bars. The vis- 
itor — Everett Hatcher — spoke to Farace 
two or three times while Farace was in pris- 
on, hoping to pierce both Chilli's coke ring 
and an alleged bribes-for-early-parole scam 
operated by state prison officials. 

There's no evidence that Farace paid his 
way out of prison: he did the minimum 
seven years for the killing of Stephen 
Charles and was released in June 1988. 
The parole board noted that Farace would 
work for a septic company and move in 
with his mother and that he had a one- 
third ownership interest in a Staten Island 
pizzeria called Papa G's. Farace. his cous- 
in Dominick. and his future brother-in-

Gerry Chilli was furious when told that daughter "Babe" Scarpa had slept with and hidden the fugitive Farace. 

Chilli, who'd been released earlier. 
Chilli had moved to Florida and, agents 
say, started supplying cocaine to a crew 
headed by Farace and his old friend Mark 
Granato. Soon after he got out of jail, 
Farace married Henry Acierno's sister, 
Antoinette, a chubby woman with dull 
brown hair, and they moved into an 
apartment near his mother's house. He 
also started having an affair with Babe 

On the surface, the Gus Farace released 
from prison was a different man from the 
one who'd gone in seven years before. He 
had pumped up his body, cleaned up his 
appearance, and learned to hide his addic- 
tions and his violent temper beneath the 
facade of a ladies' man with an oversize 
smile. He wore expensive warm-up suits 
to show off his muscles, and kept his 
hair well cropped and his car nicely 

"Gus put on a good act." says Sergeant 
loe Piraino. a Farace expert. "He was a 
colorful character, and a lot of people 
didn't realize what he was all about. Kids 
saw him as a hero. Even after he killed 
Hatcher, people affectionately called him 
Gussie. I was amazed — neighborhood ties 
go deep." 

For those who knew his violent side, af- 
fection was replaced by fear. Farace is 
said to have shot dogs in the street for 
sport, and his treatment of humans was

no better. A number of his acquaintances 
describe the same basic scene: They'd be 
talking with Gus — on the street, in a bar, 
wherever — and they'd see his face harden 
and his body flex. They'd know that they 
had somehow enraged him and that they 
might soon be maimed or dead. "So many 
stories of vicious beatings," says one 
agent, "just for looking at him funny. 
Sometimes when he was on coke, some- 
times not — his temper didn't require 
chemical assistance." 

In fact, few Staten Islanders saw Farace 
drink or get high, perhaps because staying 
sober was a condition of his parole. "He 
had a reputation as a health nut," says Pi- 
raino. "He smoked the occasional Marl- 
boro, but people told us milk was his 
drink. It was — whenever we hit a loca- 
tion, we'd check the waste bin for an ex- 
cess of milk cartons. But when he thought 
no one was looking, he still liked his vod- 
ka and his coke." 

As the agents' portrait of Farace grew 
more detailed, they realized that almost 
everything he had ever done had prepared 
him for a successful life on the lam. His 
time in prison had taught him how to sit 
in a small room day after day. His family 
ties and crime connections had given him 
a network of support. And the act he'd 
perfected during and after jail helped him 
con women — something that came in 
handy when he was on the run. 


he shot Hatcher was the 
bridge above Fresh Kills 
Creek, where he threw his 
stainless-steel Ruger .357 
Magnum into the muddy 
water. His second stop 
was the home of Babe Scarpa. 

"Gus turns up on Babe's doorstep," 
says one source close to the Chilli family, 
"saying that he's in trouble and pleading 
for help. What's she supposed to do? She 
wasn't involved, but she felt she couldn't 
turn her back on him, cryin' on her shoul- 
der like that. It was not a stand-up thing 
to do, to involve a woman like that." 

Scarpa knew of an empty house across 
the street that belonged to a friend named 
Barbara Sarnelli, who was out of town. 
She hid Farace there, agents say, without 
her father knowing. "Helping Gussie was 
not the kind of thing you'd ask his permis- 
sion for," says the friend. Agents went to 
Babe's place that first night, but Farace 
was tucked in safely across the street. 

Farace spent six weeks in the Sarnelli 
house — and a good deal of that time, 
agents say, was passed in Babe's arms. 
"Any port in a storm," says one agent. 
"Gus had two or three ports during this 
storm. Babe was the first." 

In April, Gerry Chilli was arrested with 
eight others for credit-card forgery and 
loan-sharking; charges against him were

later dropped. He was interrogated about 
Farace, "but he gave us nothing," says a 
source. "And it wasn't as if he had to 
talk — all we needed was the address." But 
Chilli didn't have it — and if he'd known it, 
he wouldn't have given it. With the case 
stalled, the task force was reduced to a 
cadre of 50 agents and cops — with anoth- 
er 100 on call for raids and surveillances. 

Later in April, in an attempt to break 
open the case, the task force arrested Fara- 
ce's cousin Dominick for a parole violation. 
"We had to bust this open," says an investi- 
gator. "And Dominick was the obvious 
way." He had been under 24-hour watch 
since the killing; finally, he was arrested for 
crossing from Staten Island to New |ersey. 
A minor violation, but it was enough: Once 
they had Dominick in custody, the agents 
put some pressure on him. "First bust him 
on a dumb thing," says the investigator, 
"then threaten him — 'If you don't give us 
Gus, you're going up for murder.' " 

That may have bothered Dominick less 
than another threat he'd received: Mob- 
sters tired of the attention their operations 
were getting from the law had said they'd 
kill Dominick and his father if he didn't 
turn in Gus. So Dominick agreed to coop- 
erate. He confessed to having witnessed 

the bullets taken from Hatcher's body. He 
also told them about Babe Scarpa, and 
Gus's hiding place at the Samelli house. 
But by the time 100 cops and agents de- 
scended on Scarpa, Farace was gone. He'd 
heard about Dominick 's arrest and moved 
to a hideout in Brooklyn. "That was the 
start of the incredible frustration," says 
Charles Rose, the prosecutor. "The first of 
many times when we just missed." 

During the raid on Scarpa's house, the 
stout, gray-haired figure of Gerry Chilli 
waddled down the driveway in his blue 
monogrammed bathrobe, a cigar clenched 
between his toothless gums. One of Scar- 
pa's children asked her grandfather who 
the men in the blue suits were. 

"They've come to exterminate the ter- 
mite," said Chilli. 

Shortly before Scarpa was arrested, 
agents say, she told Chilli that she had 
been harboring Farace. He was livid that 
she'd helped the punk whose hasty gun- 
play had brought the Feds down on his 
operation. That they'd been sleeping to- 
gether was further embarrassment. "And 
when she finally got arrested over this, 
Gerry was f— ing fuming," says a friend 
who saw him soon after he had bailed his 
daughter out. "He's a mad dog anyway, 


Jus is giving us too much |B ■ 
J trouble," the Lucheses said. 
We'd like you to give him to us." . 

the murder and gave a chilling account of 
Hatcher's death: Gus had heard that 
Hatcher was "dirty" and had vowed not 
to let himself be arrested. "Whether I get 
25 to life for drugs or 25 to life for murder 
makes no difference to me," he'd told 
Dominick. "I'm never going back to jail." 

After a tense meeting — Hatcher had 
"hard-nosed" Gus that night, telling him to 
make meetings on time and return calls 
promptly, which angered Gus even more — 
Farace and Dominick showed Hatcher the 
way back to the expressway. At the over- 
pass where they'd met, Dominick pulled 
the van beside Hatcher's Buick. Gus rolled 
down his window, and when Hatcher rolled 
down his, Farace pulled his Ruger .357 and 
blasted away. "He didn't spend a lot of time 
thinking about it," says one agent. "Gus 
was not a real meditative guy." 

Dominick told investigators that the 
weapon had been dumped in Fresh Kills 
Creek; a scuba team found it, and the FBI 
ballistics lab in Washington matched it to 


but that night he looked ready to kill." 

"The interesting question." says one in- 
vestigator, "is how far Gus could push 
Chilli before he got fed up. Gus hurts 
Chilli's business, screws his daughter, gets 
her arrested. But Chilli and Gus are old 
prison buddies — so how far does Gus 
have to go before Chilli wants revenge?" 

ce gave birth to a boy. The 
hospital was staked out, but 
Gus didn't show — he never 
did meet his son. He had 
been hiding in Westchester 
for some time after spending 
a month in the Sheepshead Bay section of 
Brooklyn and another three weeks in the 
Bronx. Now that Chilli apparently wanted 
him as much as the authorities did. Farace 
was becoming frightened. He was also us- 
ing up his roster of trustworthy associates. 

In the Bronx, he had enlisted the aid of 
lohn Petrucelli, a jailmate from his days in 

the Napanoch penitentiary. Petrucelli, a 
Luchese-crime-family soldier, had be- 
come close to Gus and the Farace fam- 
ily — he and Gus had dealt drugs together 
in prison, and he'd celebrated Italian festi- 
vals with the family. Petrucelli agreed to 
hide Farace and moved him between Yon- 
kers and another Westchester location. 

It took the cops and mobsters alike 
more than a month to track Farace to Pe 
trucelli's hideout. "We heard about [Pe- 
trucelli] from an informant in Septem- 
ber," says a source, "put him under 
surveillance, and prepared to raid." 

Organized crime did the same: In mid- 
September, two members of the Luchese 
family paid a visit to Petrucelli — one of 
their own men. "Gus is giving us too much 
trouble," they reportedly said. "We'd like 
you to give him to us." Petrucelli refused: 
he'd already moved Farace to a hideout in 
Brewster. Less than a week later, Petrucel- 
li's loyalty won him bullets in the head, 
neck, chest, and stomach, allegedly from 
the guns of two Luchese hit men. One of 
the men charged in Petrucelli 's murder, lo- 
seph Cosentino, had grown up with Petru- 
celli in his mother's house. They were like 
brothers, but the Farace case divided the 
family against itself. "It was getting to be 
like the Civil War," says an agent. 

Petrucelli's death was the toughest 
break of all for the agents. "We were 
hours from Gus when Petrucelli got 
whacked," says one. "Then we lost his 
tracks for two months." 

In Brewster, agents say, Farace learned 
of Petrucelli's death and got scared that 
the Lucheses knew where he was. So he 
pulled one more name out of his book- 
that of an old friend named Donna-Marie 
Nicastro. Farace and Nicastro had known 
each other for years; he had escorted her 
to her senior prom. In the summer of 
1988, they'd run into each other at the 
Jersey shore and exchanged phone num- 
bers. Now Farace put her number to use. 

"Whether out of love, loyalty, or fear, 
says one agent, "this woman felt com- 
pelled to help Gus." Nicastro, a New |er- 
sey building manager, called a friend of 
hers named |ulio Bofill. An alleged coke- 
dealer, Bofill was having money troubles 
and wanted to sublet his Manhattan 
apartment. Nicastro said she knew some- 
one named Tony who'd take over the rent. 

The place — a studio on the top floor of 
a five-story building at 308 East 85th 
Street — was known to neighbors as a drug 
den. "Loud music, people coming and go- 
ing through the night," says one. "We 
complained dozens of times. Then, in Sep- 
tember, everything quiets down." 

The atmosphere was calmer thanks to 
the new subtenant — Farace. Bofill appar- 
ently didn't know who his subtenant was; 
he knew only that he slept a lot, cooked 
Italian food, was fond of cocaine and

women, and had the rent 

Farace rarely left the 
filthy little apartment. He 
used peroxide and L'Ore- 
al dye to color his hair 
and beard, and occasion- 
ally he'd slip out for a 
vodka at Fleming's bar or 
to rent videos — movies 
like The Godfather 
(which he watched the 
night before he died). He 
spent that time in a kind 
of petrified limbo — 
sleeping, staring at the 
tube, looking at pictures 
of his wife and baby, 
playing with his sawed- 
off shotgun and .38 re- 
volver, and watching his 
chest sag and his waist- 
line expand. He was stir- 
crazy and afraid for his 
life, but he never showed 
remorse for what he'd 
done. And he didn't let 
his worries interfere 
with his social life. 

"He was such a sweet 
guy," said Penny Pan- 
cerev, a nurse and part- 
time rock-video actress — 
who met "Tony" through her friend Bofill. 
His meatballs were great." Sometimes, he 
slept on the roof when Bofill and friends 
wanted to stay up late. "The poor man was 
always trying to sleep," said Pancerev. 

He was also trying to make a decision — 
whether to flee the country or turn him- 
self in before Chilli or the Lucheses got to 
him. A letter from his mother, who'd 
moved to Florida, told him he had "a big 
decision to make, and we'll stand by you" 
and advised him to remain "free as a but- 
terfly." If he was going to stay so free, he 
needed some help: His money was run- 
ning out, his wife and brother-in-law had 
just been arrested, and he didn't know 
who was left to turn to that he could trust. 

17, Farace roused himself, 
put on black jeans, a blue 
Nike polo shirt, a denim 
jacket, and white Reeboks, 
and headed out with his 
old friend Joey Sclafani, a 
low-watt, would-be wiseguy related to loe 
"Butch" Corrao, a powerful member of 
lohn Gotti's Cambino family. Farace and 
Sclafani were apparently going to see a 
man Gus thought would help him: a 
Brooklyn dope-dealer named Lou Tuzzio. 

Investigators believe that Tuzzio had 
called Sclafani and told him he'd help Fa- 
face get away. Gus must have known he 
was taking a chance in meeting Tuzzio — 
the dealer was associated with Chilli's 
crew. But Farace was out of options. He 
left his sanctuary and rode in Sclafani's 

Farace spent his last two months on East 85th Street 
(top), cooking Italian food, sleeping, and snorting coke. 
In his pressure suit (right) after the rubout 

Pontiac over the bridge to Brooklyn. 

Sclafani and Farace were waiting out- 
side Tuzzio's mother's house when the 
blue van pulled up beside them. Farace 
recognized the driver and rolled down his 
window — just as Everett Hatcher had rec- 
ognized Farace nine months before, when 
Gus rolled up next to him in the van. And 
the same way that Farace opened fire on 
Hatcher that night, the men in the van 
blasted away at Farace. Hatcher's gun was 
in the glove compartment when he died; 
Farace's never left his waistband. 

No arrests have been made in the mur- 
der, and Detective Richard Gordon, who 
won't discuss details, says he is investigat- 
ing every lead — "the obvious and the off- 
the-wall." But federal sources say the 
prime theory is that Tuzzio, acting under 
orders from Gerry Chilli, was in the van 
and took part in the shooting. 

Tuzzio won't be confirming that, be- 
cause he was shot eight times and killed 
on a Brooklyn street in early (anuary. 

Tuzzio may have been killed by Chilli's 
men just to silence him. Or he may have 
been killed by Gambino associates as ret- 
ribution for the bullets that hit their friend 
Sclafani the night Gus was killed. 

Sclafani has recovered from those 
wounds and, so far, survived. He has been 
charged with harboring a fugitive, re- 
leased from the hospital, and freed on 
$400,000 bail; he has declined an offer of 
police protection. "Will Sclafani talk?" 
asks one mob lawyer. "That's the ques- 
tion everybody's asking." 

But Sclafani may not know who set up 

Gus, and even if he does, the case will be 
very hard to make. It's one thing to devel- 
op a compelling theory — Chilli had the 
strongest motive and the connection to 
Tuzzio — but having a theory and making 
a case are two different things. "To make 
it stick, they'll have to put informants on 
the stand," says one agent. "And is get- 
ting Gus's killer so important we want to 
burn good sources?" 

Charles Rose, who spent months pre- 
paring to crucify Farace in court, thinks it 
is. "The whole reason we wanted Gus 
alive," he says, "was to bring civility to 
these miscreants — to show that agents are 
inviolate and that justice will prevail. 
Now, do we let street justice end it? That's 
inappropriate. And that's why getting 
Gus's killer is as important as getting Gus. 
It's called the rule of law." 

For now, another law seems to have 
prevailed, and not everyone is dissatisfied 
with the result. In the real world, the Feds 
don't always get their man — sometimes 
they have to persuade the bad guys to get 
him for them. Even DEA chief Robert 
Stutman, who was disappointed that he 
couldn't see Farace tried under a new 
federal death-penalty statute, seems re- 
lieved to have it over. Stutman is retir- 
ing to write a book and become a corpo- 
rate anti-drug consultant. "As soon as I 
saw the pictures of Gus's body," he says, 
"this was wrapped up as far as I'm 

One of Stutman's men put it more suc- 
cinctly. "I saw the morgue shots," he says. 
"Dead is dead."

Army Plaza, Theodore f. Forstmann was getting 
worked up. "Don't you see? Don't you get it?" he 
beseeched a listener one day last spring. "It's like 
the story about the kid and the emperor. The em- 
peror has no clothes! Kravis is naked!" 

Although Forstmann had already been raging 
for almost an hour about his arch-rival, Henry 
Kravis, he was far from finished. Repeating argu- 
ments he'd made countless times in the past five 
years, he cited evidence that the empire built by Kravis's 
famous levcraged-buy-out boutique, Kohlberg Kravis 
Roberts & Company, was teetering under the weight of 
debt. "It's crazy!" Forstmann cried. "If he were the 
CEO of any other company in the country, they'd put 
Kravis in a straitjackel. They'd haul him off to an

Mind you, Forstmann insisted, he has nothing against 
Kravis himself. "It's not personal between me and the 
little f— ," Forstmann would say later. "It's not Kravis! 
It's not Kravis! My focus is not on that little assh— , 
stupid-f-t, megalomaniacal guy." 

His focus, he said, is on junk bonds. Kravis — "the lit- 
tle bastard"— is only the emblem. 

At 49, Teddy Forstmann seems to be a man who has 
everything. Broad-shouldered and solidly built, he plays 
a better game of tennis than when he was a top-ranked 
teenager. He's one of New York's best-known bachelors 
and a Republican fund-raiser of national repute. He 
lives in a world of chauffeured Mercedeses, corporate 
jets, and well-stocked helicopters that whisk him over 
Manhattan traffic. His office commands a spectacular 
view of Central Park and features a photo of Forstmann 
clasping hands with Ronald Reagan. He owns an apart- 
ment on the Upper East Side, as well as homes in South- 
ampton and Aspen. In his spare time, he has bankrolled 
an Afghan rebel group. 

Ten years ago— inspired, as it happens, by an encoun-

ter with Henry Kravis — Forstmann founded his firm, Forstmann 
Little & Company. It grew to be one of Wall Street's leading 
LBO boutiques, second only to Kohlbcrg Kravis. Using a con- 
servative, cash-driven approach, Forstmann Little has acquired 
fourteen companies — from Dr Pepper to Topps, the baseball- 
card-maker — in eleven years, racking up profits of 500 percent 
on some deals and becoming a favorite of blue-chip institutional 
investors. The firm's successes have made Ted Forstmann worth 
far into the millions. 

But his wealth, it seems, has not brought Forstmann serenity. 
For much of the eighties, at the slightest provocation, he was 
known to burst into jeremiads — to friends, business associates, 
investors, analysts, even people sitting next to him on air- 
planes — about the supposed evils of junk bonds and their prin- 
cipal advocates. 

"Sometimes it's just impossible to get the guy to shut up," 
says Peter A. Cohen, chair- 
man of Shearson Lehman 
Hutton, who grappled with 
Forstmann during the 1988 
fight for RJR Nabisco. "He 
just goes on and on."

, these bonds — and 

particularly their exotic 
strains — threaten the U.S. 

Other junk-bond critics 
have worried about the im- 
pact of these high-yield, 
high-risk securities, but 
probably no one has com- 
plained quite as often as 
Forstmann or with his ad ho- 
minem vigor — as if he need- 
ed to beat against a real-life 
incarnation of the rather ab- 
stract evil he saw ruining his 
field of business. 

At first, he directed his 
anger at Michael Milken, 
the Drexel Burnham Lam- 
bert financier who pio- 
neered junk bonds. More 
recently, though, Forst- 
mann 's target has been Henry Kravis. 

"The reason Kravis can pay these incredible sums is that his 
money isn'l real," Forstmann argues. "It's phony. It's funny 
money. It's wampum. These guys are getting away with 

Though Forstmann denies it. many people see a pinch of 
envy here. After all. Forstmann and Kravis started out in busi- 
ness as casual friends, working together at a small investment 
firm. Both have gone on to enormous success, but Kravis, us- 
ing junk bonds, has overshadowed Forstmann's considerable 
accomplishments in the levcraged-buy-out field. What's 
more, Forstmann was once close to Kravis's wife, designer 
Carolync Roehm. 

Kravis tries hard not to smile when asked about Forstmann. 
The two men don't know each other all that well. Though Forst- 
mann's hostility is clearly returned, Kravis rarely lets it show, 
preferring to maintain that Forstmann isn't worth troubling

himself over. "The guy has an Avis complex," Kravis likes to 

Over the past year or so, the Forstmann-Kravis feud has taken 
some dramatic turns. In late 1988, Forstmann suffered defeat in 
the battle to control R)R Nabisco, which Kravis eventually 
bought for $25 billion. It was history's largest deal, and 
Forstmann had hoped to use it to show the world what a 
"fraud" Kravis and his junk bonds were. Then, throughout 
last year, Forstmann and Kravis squared off in the halls of 
Congress over proposed curbs on the use of certain types of 
junk bonds. 

Meanwhile, though, Forstmann has gained a kind of redemp- 
tion on another front. After years of strong growth, the junk- 
bond market has all but collapsed, and the risks of junk-bond 
financing were highlighted last week by the bankruptcy filing of 
Robert Campeau's American retailing operation. Even Forst- 
mann's critics have to ac- 
knowledge that in some 
ways, he was right all along. 


Ted Forstmann was 
born angry. His 
grandfather, an auto- 
cratic, 300-pound 
German immigrant, 
founded a textile 
company, Forstmann 
Woolens, that made 
him one of the 
world's richest men. Ted's 
father. |ulius, inherited the 
company and raised his chil- 
dren in splendor in a Green- 
wich, Connecticut, mansion 
complete with tennis courts 
and a private baseball field. 

For all its wealth, the 
Forstmann household was 
far from idyllic. Julius Forst- 
mann was an abusive alco- 
holic, and Ted, the second of 
six children, grew up in 
physical fear. Many nights, 
the Forstmann home rever- 
berated with screaming 
fights, sometimes sparked 
when Forstmann's mother 
challenged her husband on 
his drinking. "You never 
knew the truth in my father's 
house," Forstmann says. 

Ted Forstmann became 
very big on truth. His older 
brother. Tony, tried to be Ted's father figure, but Ted only re- 
sented him for it. As adults, Ted and Tony Forstmann didn't 
speak for more than ten years — though having now reconciled 
with him, Ted is a regular at Tony's eccentric private tennis 
championship in Water Mill, the annual Camp Huggy Bear 
Tournament (.New York. October 10. 1988). 

In his teens, Ted Forstmann channeled much of his anger into 
sports. By sixteen, he was ranked among the East Coast's top 
junior amateur tennis players, but his joy in the game, he says, 
was slowly crushed under pressure from his mother. "A tennis 
mother," he calls her. "She pushed me too hard." By the time 
he was seventeen, Forstmann's tennis career was over. Tied 5-5 
in the finals of a major junior tournament at Forest Hills, he 
disputed a key call. When he was overruled, Forstmann's com- 
petitive fire flickered. He lost the set 7-5; the next was a 6-0 
blowout. "I just couldn't take it anymore," he says. He didn't 
walk onto another tennis court for seventeen years.

Hockey was Forstmann's other love. At Yale, he became a 
straight-C student and a star goalie. After graduation, Forst- 
mann says, he turned down an invitation to join the U.S. nation- 
al team at the world championships. Instead, he spent a year 
wandering through a succession of minor jobs — teaching gym at 
a reform school, working for a Washington law firm. He was, he 
says, a "mixed-up kid" trying to come to grips with his child- 
hood. Then his father died. 

lulius Forstmann's wish had been for his second son to go to 
law school. Ted Forstmann enrolled at Columbia three months 
after his father's death. But the money from his father's estate 
began to dwindle. Forstmann Woolens had failed and was sold. 
His father's estate, while paying for tuition and books, gave Forst- 
mann only $ 1 50 a month. To keep up the good life of the rich kid 
from Greenwich, he played high-stakes bridge games. Soon he was 
living in a $350-a-month apartment in mid town Manhattan. 

The law didn't hold much 
attraction, but after gradua- 
tion, he joined a small Man- 
hattan law firm run by a 
friend of his father's. For 
three years. Forstmann en- 
dured the minutiae of corpo- 
rate legal work, though he 
often sneaked out to a bridge 
game where, on a good 
night, he could make $ 1 ,500. 
He hung in at the firm, how- 
ever, until the day it reeled in 
a major Wall Street bond un- 
derwriting. "Forstmann," 
the senior lawyer proudly in- 
toned, "you will be our liai- 
son with the printer." 

Forstmann landed with 
friends at a small Wall Street 
company, where he learned 
the ins and outs of stock un- 
derwritings and financial 
deals. Then he spent six 
months at another small in- 
vestment firm, Fahaerty & 
Swartwood, where he 
worked beside an industri- 
ous young Oklahoman 
named Henry Kravis. The 
two had dinner a few times 
before Kravis took a job at 
Bear, Stearns. Forstmann 
soon left, too, joining still an- 
other obscure investment 
firm. For three years there, 
he dabbled in underwriting, 
investment banking, and 

merger work. In the end, it was the same story: Forstmann hat- 
ed the constraints of office work under senior executives. "The 
fact is, I was never a good employee," he says. "I never did what 
I was told, and I always screwed up the chain of command." 


out of money. He was too proud to ask his mother for a 
handout and cringed at the idea of going to his brother 
Tony, who had founded a successful money-management 
firm, Forstmann- Leff Associates. After selling his car, 
Forstmann had $20,000, which he figured would last a 
year. To pay the rent, he hustled at the bridge table and on 
the golf course, and worked sporadically trying to arrange 
deals among his Wall Street friends. Approaching middle 
age, Ted Forstmann was a Wall Street refugee, a minor- 
league playboy, and a sorry bet to make a mark in life. 
One thing Forstmann had, though, was a seat on the board of

Though he derides Henry Kravis as an 
emblem of all that s wrong with Wall 
Street, Forstmann was once friends with 
Kravis and his wife, Carolyne Roehm. 

Graham Magnetics, a small Texas company he had helped take 
public in his last Wall Street job. He persuaded the company's 
president to sell his firm — and to let Forstmann handle the auc- 
tion. Forstmann didn't have an office, so he promised his broth- 
er's secretary a mink coat if she'd take his calls, telling people he 
was in a meeting and quickly relaying messages to his 

It took eighteen months to sell Graham Magnetics — "I was 
very inept," Forstmann says — but when the deal closed, Forst- 
mann was $300,000 richer. He took an office at Forstmann-Leff 
and tried putting together more deals, though he still spent 
much of his time at the bridge table and on the golf course. 

One of Forstmann's golfing buddies at Long Island's Deep- 
dale Golf Club was Derald Ruttenberg, then president of an 
industrial company named Studebaker-Worthington. Forst- 
mann was forever trying to arrange deals for Ruttenberg. So 

when Forstmann's younger 
brother Nick, then working 
at a start-up firm named 
Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, 
said he wanted to arrange a 
meeting with the executive, 
Forstmann set one up. 

That meeting changed Ted 
Forstmann's life. He and 
Ruttenberg listened to Henry 
Kravis and Jerry Kohlberg 
propose something they 
called a leveraged buy-out — 
a process in which a small 
group of company managers 
borrow money to buy their 
company from public share- 
holders, often repaying the 
debt through the company's 
cash flow and the sale of cor- 
porate assets. Forstmann 
was familiar with the con- 
cept but had never tried any- 
thing like it. Ruttenberg lis- 
tened politely; after the 
meeting broke up, he asked 
Forstmann, "Isn't that kind 
of what you were talking 

Forstmann wasn't quite 
sure what Ruttenberg meant. 
"Well," he said guardedly. 
"Yeah, sort of." 

"Well," Ruttenberg con- 
tinued, "what do those guys 
have that you and I don't 

"Okay. How would you go about doing this?" 

"Well, I would need some money first." 

The conversation led to Ruttenberg's proposing to bankroll 
Forstmann in a new firm. Ruttenberg and a group of his friends 
would chip in, and Forstmann and his brother Nick would try 
their hand at leveraged buy-outs. 

Ruttenberg told Ted Forstmann something the younger man 
would never forget. "I have a reputation, it's all I have, and I 
don't want to lose that reputation," he said. Forstmann em- 
braced it as a creed. "I have never, ever, ever, ever, ever forgot- 
ten that," he says. 

Ted and Nick Forstmann teamed up with a former investment 
banker named Brian Little, and Forstmann Little & Company 
opened its doors in 1978: three men, two salaries — Ted didn't 
take one for years — and one secretary. 

The awesome profit potential of LBOs didn't dawn on most 
Wall Street pros until the early eighties. By then, Forstmann

Little had emerged as one of a handful of top buy-out boutiques. 
It was among the first LBO firms to raise money directly from 
giant pension funds, a practice pioneered by Kohlberg Kravis. 
Crisscrossing the country on money-raising tours, Ted Forst- 
mann perfected the pitch that became his trademark. It began 
with The Reputation — "The best on Wall Street, ask anyone" — 
escalated into a discussion of Forstmann Little's financial 
strengths and old-fashioned ways, and, especially in later ver- 
sions, climaxed with an all-out attack on junk bonds. 

After a growing success with smaller buy-outs, Forstmann 
Little's world began to change in 1983, when the firm got into a 
bidding battle for Dr Pepper, the Dallas soft-drink franchiser. 
Forstmann 's opponent. Castle & Cooke, was backed by Drexel 
Burnham and Milken, then an obscure California bond trader. 
Forstmann Little's bid had the support of Dr Pepper's manage- 
ment and was made in cash. Castle & Cooke bid more, relying 
on junk bonds. Eventually, 
Forstmann triumphed when 
Drexel, in a rare failure, had 
trouble raising funds. 

jor scrape with a 
junk-bond advocate, 
however, ended 
much less happily for 
him and led to a fate- 
ful shift in Wall 
Street's power struc- 
ture. In 1985, Rev- 
Ion, the international 
cosmetics giant, came under 
attack from Ronald O. Perel- 
man, then a little-known 
Philadelphia investor. Perel- 
man's principal asset, a gro- 
cery-store chain named Pan- 
try Pride, was a fraction of 
Revlon's size, but Perelman 
was armed with Drexel 
Burnham junk bonds. With 
its defenses crumbling, Rev- 
lon's management rushed to 
Forstmann Little for help. 
But Perelman finally won out 
when a Delaware court ruled 
that key components of the 
Forstmann-Revlon merger 
agreement unfairly discrimi- 
nated against Pantry Pride. 

Revlon was the first hos- 
tile takeover of a major pub- 
lic company by a junk-bond- 
backed buyer, and it opened 
the gates for a string of similar actions, including raids by inves- 
tors like Paul Bilzerian and Sir lames Goldsmith. Because of the 
Revlon deal, Forstmann held himself in a way responsible for 
the turmoil junk-bond-financed raiders unleashed on corporate 
America. It didn't help any that Perelman took over Revlon's 
plush headquarters in Forstmann Little's own building. 

As time wore on, Forstmann came to believe that Wall Street 
had been taken over by a junk-bond cartel whose guru was Mike 
Milken and whose most powerful member was Henry Kravis. 
With junk bonds behind more and more takeovers, Forstmann 
felt they were perverting not just the LBO sector but Wall Street 
itself. Almost alone among major acquirors, Forstmann Little 
refused to use them. 

Ted Forstmann held the junk bond responsible for twisting 
the buy-out world's priorities until they were unrecognizable. 
With junk bonds, he felt, puny, upstart firms were able to 
acquire important American companies. He thought that 

Forstmann Little's ideal — to buy a company, work side by 
side with management to build the business, and then sell out 
in five to seven years — was disappearing from the Wall Street 
landscape. Instead, Forstmann thought, all that mattered was 
keeping up a steady flow of transactions that produced an 
even steadier flow of fees — management fees for the buy-out 
firms, advisory fees for the investment banks, junk-bond fees 
for the bond specialists. As far as Forstmann was concerned, 
the entire LBO world had become the province of quick-buck 

Worst of all, Forstmann felt, were the new versions of junk 
bonds that seemed to crop up with each new transaction: secu- 
rities that paid interest only in other bonds (called pay-in-kinds. 
or PIKs), stock that was crammed down shareholders' throats 
(artlessly known as "cram down"), and bonds whose interest 
rates escalated until debt service could choke a company to 


Forstmann derided these 
securities as "funny money." 
"play dough," and — his per- 
sonal favorite — "wampum." 
In speeches to institutional 
investors, he took to waving 
a piece of Indian beadwork 
to make his point. Sooner or 
later, Forstmann predicted, 
the economy would turn 
down and all the junk-bond 
junkies would go belly up 
when they couldn't make 
their mountainous debt pay- 
ments. When that happened. 
Forstmann feared, junk- 
bond debt would be so wide- 
spread that the entire U.S. 
economy might be dragged 
into a depression.

bonds was more than 
an affront to Forst- 
mann's morals, of 
course. It was hurting 
his business, too. Be- 
cause the use of junk 
bonds allowed corpo- 
rate raiders to raise 
money cheaply and 
easily, it tended to drive up 
the prices of takeover tar- 
gets. For the first time, Forst- 
mann was outbid for compa- 
nies. In many cases, he 
refused to enter a takeover 
battle in which junk-bond users had driven up prices, and Forst- 
mann Little found that it could compete on an equal basis for 
large takeovers only during periodic disruptions in the junk 

The firm grabbed its largest company yet, a California defense 
contractor named Lear Siegler, after the market for junk bonds 
dried up following disclosure of the Ivan Boesky insider-trading 
scandal in November 1986. Again opposed by a Drexel Bum- 
ham client, Forstmann took his crusade right to the company's 
board. "Before I tell you who we are," Forstmann told the as- 
sembled directors, "let me tell who we are not. We are not. nor 
will we ever be, a client of Drexel Burnham Lambert." Forst- 
mann detected an audible gasp from the Drexel banker present 
"We have not. and we will not, issue crazy paper to put the 
companies we buy in jeopardy. We are real people with real 

Despite success in the Lear Siegler transaction, Forstmann

Little completed fewer and fewer deals. In 1987, after raising a 
then-record $2.7-billion buy-out fund from investors, Forst- 
mann Little failed to propose a single new LBO. 


Once, a Milken lieutenant visited Forstmann Little and, 
in a meeting arranged by a Forstmann aide named |ohn 
Sprague, suggested the firm jump on the junk-bond 
bandwagon. Forstmann chatted politely with the Drexel 
banker, shook his hand farewell, and then called 
Sprague into his office. "John," he told the younger 
man, "you've got a long and profitable life ahead of you 
here. But don't ever bring another piece of slime like 
, that in here again." 
Forstmann's alarm grew as other Wall Street brokerages, ini- 
tially cool to junk bonds, flocked to grab a piece of the market. 
Imagine ten debutantes sit- 

ting in a ballroom," Forst- 
mann told a gathering of Se- 
curities and Exchange 
commissioners. "They're the 
heads of Merrill Lynch, 
Shearson Lehman, and all 
the other big brokerages. In 
walks a hooker. It's Milken. 
The debutantes wouldn't 
have anything to do with a 
woman who sells her body 
for $100 a night. But this 
hooker is different. She 
makes $1 million a night. 
Pretty soon, what have you 
got? Eleven hookers." 

Henry Kravis was galling 
to Forstmann not only be- 
cause he was the most prom- 
inent user of junk bonds but 
also because he did it in 
Forstmann Little's front 
yard, the world of LBOs. The 
companies Kravis owned, 
Forstmann told people, 
weren't half as healthy as 
KKR claimed. The firm's 
biggest buy-out, Beatrice, 
was proving impossible to 
sell off even as Kravis main- 
tained it would be the most 
profitable ever. The returns 
Kravis paid his investors, 
Forstmann insisted, weren't 
a fraction of those paid by 
Forstmann Little. A quick 
glance at the headlines told 

you Kravis was a fraud, Forstmann said. How could any buy-out 
firm with a fiduciary duty to its investors bid for one company 
one week and another the next? Why, in the fall of 1988 alone, 
Kohlberg Kravis had bid $2 billion for Macmillan, then ac- 
quired a 10 percent stake in Kroger, then got interested in Kraft, 
then went after RJR Nabisco. 

A spokesman for Kohlberg Kravis points out that only a 
handful of the firm's 30-odd LBOs over the past thirteen years 
have encountered serious financial troubles. 

Curiously, the paths of Forstmann and Kravis have crossed 
socially, as well as in business. More than ten years ago, Forst- 
mann was a friend of Carolyne Roehm's first husband, Axel 
Roehm, and he attended the wedding of Carolyne and Axel, in a 
church on Nantucket. After the Roehms separated, Forstmann 
befriended Carolyne and occasionally escorted her to affairs 
around New York. He became something of a confidant. There 
have been suggestions that more was involved, but Roehm de-

Nabuco. "Sometimes it's impossible to 
get the guy to shut up, "says Cohen. 

nies it. "Teddy and I were just friends," she insists. 

Both Roehm and Forstmann do recall, however, a phone call 
around 1980 in which she told him, "1 have two new beaux." 
One was a billionaire oilman and the other was Henry Kravis. 
Roehm asked Forstmann's opinion, and, she recalls, Forstmann 
said of Kravis, "He's the king of our industry." Forstmann de- 
nies that account, though he won't go into details. 

That, of course, was well before junk bonds heated up. Over 
the following years, Forstmann went head-to-head against Kra- 
vis in few deals. But in the spring of 1988, sue months before the 
RJR Nabisco fight, Kraft put its Duracell-battery unit up for 
sale. Forstmann had successfully wooed Duracell's manage- 
ment. Indeed, he'd grown so close to Duracell's president, C. 
Robert Kidder, that the executive advised Kraft's senior man- 
agement not to sell Duracell to a junk-bond buyer like Kohlberg 
Kravis. Kidder also pleaded with Kravis himself not to buy the 

company. But Kravis not 
only rejected the plea, he 
upped his offer for the com- 
pany, swamping a bid by 
Forstmann Little. 

/ and fall of 1988, 
111 Forstmann looked on 
' I 'as Kravis broke one 
of the LBO world's 
most sacred tenets, 
secretly accumulating 
stock positions in 
Texaco and Kroger, 

L much as a hostile 

raider would. 

The aggressive tactics 
forced Forstmann into an ag- 
onizing reappraisal of his 
own beliefs. "Maybe I'm 
wrong," he said to himself. 
"Maybe I'm the one who's 
missing the dawn of a new fi- 
nancial age." His younger 
partners suggested he re- 
think his opposition to junk 
bonds. His girlfriend urged 
him to "forget Kravis," quit 
worrying, and enjoy his rich- 
es. Forstmann tried to relax 
but found that his long-held 
convictions were only grow- 
ing stronger. 

In October 1988, Forst- 
mann took some friends' ad- 
vice and wrote an article de- 
nouncing junk bonds for the 
Wall Street loumal's editorial page. "Today's financial age has 
become a period of unbridled excess with accepted risk soaring 
out of proportion to possible reward," Forstmann wrote. "Ev- 
ery week, with ever-increasing levels of irresponsibility, many 
billions of dollars in American assets are being saddled with 
debt that has virtually no chance of being repaid. Most of this is 
happening for the short-term benefit of Wall Street's investment 
bankers, lawyers, leveraged buy-out firms and junk-bond deal- 
ers at the long-term expense of Main Street's employees, com- 
munities, companies, and investors." 

"Watching these deals get done," Forstmann concluded, "is 
like watching a herd of drunk drivers take to the highway on 
New Year's Eve. You cannot tell who will hit whom, but you 
know it is dangerous." 

Given such feelings, many people on Wall Street saw it as 
profoundly ironic when, several days later, Forstmann Little 
went charging into the bruising fight to control RJR Nabisco. 

'^xo|J»ph by Louij Psi wim/Ma m 


The Atlanta-based company, the maker of everything from 
Oreos to Winstons, had grown profitable and fat under the pres- 
idency of F. Ross Johnson, a breezy, back-slapping Canadian 
who'd attained the helm of the company after a series of internal 
coups. But when R|R Nabisco's stock price continued to sag, 
Johnson proposed taking the company private in the largest lev- 
eraged buy-out in history. Johnson first teamed up with Shear- 
son Lehman Hutton and its chairman, Peter Cohen. But soon 
Henry Kravis plunged into the fray with an offer of his own. 
With that news, Forstmann decided to step in. 

First, he tried to get into lohnson's management group, but 
those talks fell through, largely because the group planned to 
use junk bonds. Any deal with the Johnson forces was probably 
doomed the night Forstmann spent several hours waiting in a 
conference room while Peter Cohen and others negotiated with 
Henry Kravis in an office down the hall. So Forstmann Little 
teamed with a group of other Goldman, Sachs clients, including 
Procter & Gamble and Ralston Purina, to make its own third- 
party run on Johnson's company. 

Forstmann spent days plotting how his "white hats" would 
face off against Kravis's "black hats" and. in their victory, ex- 
pose the evils of junk bonds. Instead, Forstmann found that a 
workable bid couldn't be 
launched at such steep 
prices without junk bonds. 
Still, Forstmann wanted to 
win so badly that he en- 
dured a week of junk-bond 
lectures from young Gold- 
man, Sachs bankers. "I'm 
speaking English, and it's 
like they're speaking Turk- 
ish," he said later. 

Geoff Boisi, Goldman, 
Sachs's investment-bank- 
ing chief and a key Forst- 
mann adviser, couldn't 
fathom Forstmann 's objec- 
tions to using even a few of 

the securities. "What are you, a priest?" he asked at one point. 
"Have you got some kind of religious conviction about this 

The answer, of course, was yes. But even had Forstmann 
wanted to change his ways at that point, he couldn't have. The 
fact was, his campaign against junk bonds had painted Forst- 
mann Little into a corner: To use junk to buy RJR Nabisco 
would have made the firm a laughingstock. Confronting this, 
Forstmann Little bowed out. 


suffered from a bad cold. Finally, in January, two 
months after he had pulled out of the deal, he managed 
to enjoy himself at Forstmann Little's tenth-anniversary 
bash at the Rainbow Room. There, among celebrity 
friends like lackie Mason and Danny Sullivan, the race- 
car driver, and political pals like Jack Kemp and Robert 
Mosbacher, Forstmann let off steam. At one point, 
Forstmann took the stage and pounded out a rousing 
. rendition of "Johnny B. Goode" on the piano, accompa- 
nied by an aging Ohio rock-and-roll band. 

In the past year, Forstmann has spent much of his time in 
Washington lobbying against junk bonds. He argued hard to get 
Congress to ban the interest deduction on certain kinds of junk 
bonds. Kravis lobbied just as hard against the measure. (A 
weakened version of the bill Forstmann sought was later 
passed.) The men almost came face to face in a breakfast debate 
arranged by one legislator, but Kravis backed out at the last 
minute, apparently after he learned Forstmann would be there. 

Meanwhile, as investors started to worry about the fate of a 
number of debt-laden companies, the junk-bond market turned 
jittery. Some of the fears hit home over the summer, when the 


These days, Forstmann has a right to feel 

redeemed. "People are beginning to 
understand what this stuff is all about, " 
he said as the junk-bond market soured. 
'The worm has finally turned. " 

junk-backed retail empire of Robert Campeau fell into serious 
financial trouble. Worried investors saw the problems of Cam- 
peau as a sign of things to come, and they were right: Troubles 
with the UAL buy-out triggered a stock-market free-fall last Oc- 
tober, and just last month a big Kohlberg Kravis buy-out, Hills- 
borough Holdings, filed for protection under Chapter 11, the 
first of Kravis's major companies to do so. In this atmosphere, 
the prices plunged on many junk bonds — including those of 
RJR, although they have since rebounded somewhat. (Despite 
its recent troubles, Kohlberg Kravis has been quick to deny that 
its empire faces a crisis. Privately, more than one irritated KKR 
aide blames Forstmann for much of the stinging press the firm 
has received in recent week.) 

So far, most of Forstmann's dire forecasts about the Ameri- 
can economy haven't come to pass, but demand for junk 
bonds, vital to new takeovers, has dried up, and Wall Street's 
takeover community is dormant. "Right now, we're dead," 
complains a prominent Wall Street arbitrageur. "The junk 
market just doesn't look like it's coming back at all. We're 
totally bearish." 

Ironically, one fellow who's bullish — though not, of course, 
on junk bonds— is Ted Forstmann. Last fall, after staying out of 

the deal game for much of 
the past three years, Forst- 
mann Little unveiled a 
plan to raise up to $3 bil- 
lion from institutional in- 
vestors; the money would 
be used to buy equity from 
public companies in return 
for board seats. Forstmann 
says his plan for the fund is 
revolutionary, since he'd 
be putting money into 
troubled companies rather 
than taking over with an 
LBO. In fact, other firms — 
Lazard Freres & Company, 
for example — have been 
doing the same sort of thing for some time. The fund is, howev- 
er, a natural extension of Forstmann's long-held position as a 
leading "white knight" rescuer. 

Some institutions that have invested with Forstmann Little 
would probably rather see the firm put to use the $2.7 billion 
it's been sitting on for several years while reportedly charging a 
minimum annual management fee of $27 million. The New 
York Times has pointed out that the new Forstmann Little fund 
would keep substantially more of whatever profits it gener- 
ates — 20 percent — than other long-term money managers. Still, 
the fund's board of directors includes people like George Shultz 
and Drew Lewis, and there's every indication that Ted Forst- 
mann will pull it off. 


/ to be coming around to his point of view, Forstmann is 
J sharply lowering his public profile. At his lawyer's urg- 
1 ing, he is scaling back on interviews with journalists. 
(Although he helped in the preparation of the book from 
which this article is adapted, he would not cooperate for 
this article.) Part of his sudden reticence, he says, has to 
do with the laws regulating the solicitation for the new 
Forstmann Little fund. But it's also clear that many on 
Wall Street are simply tired of hearing Forstmann's 
plaint. "There's nothing so irritating as a guy who says, '1 told 
you so,' " Forstmann acknowledged last fall. 

Still, he made no apologies. "I am a preacher, no question." 
he said. "I like for people to understand what I have to say." 
And though he's reluctant to say so. there's little doubt Ted 
Forstmann is feeling redeemed. "People are finally beginning to 
understand what this stuff is all about," he said. "The worm has 
finally turned."

ing at the Guggenheim, Hol- 
zer's huge electronic signs 
are blasting across the mu- 
seum's gloomy atrium: "... reioice our 


best. ..." The artists, patrons, and ad- 
ministrators are making their way up to 
dinner tables set out along the museum's 
sloping galleries. The artists are insouci- 
ant in open-necked shirts, the patrons and 
administrators a mass of dark suits and 
little black dresses. In the middle of the 
crowd is a tiny, incongruous figure. Con- 
siderably younger than most of the others, 
she has shaggy hair and is wearing half- 
moon-shaped glasses with broken frames, 
faded cotton pedal pushers, a striped cot- 
ton top from |. Crew, and white socks. 
Until two years ago, the woman was one 
of the art world's most powerful figures. 

She is Ingrid Sischy, 37, for nine years the 
editor of Artforum and, as of December, 
the new editor of Interview, the magazine 
founded by Andy Warhol in 1969. 

Everybody seems to want to say hello to 
Sischy. Roy Lichtenstein comes over. 
Then Claes Oldenburg. The Sol LeWitts 
ask her if she wants to come to Tuscany 
for Christmas. She would "love to," 
Sischy says in her low contralto, tinged 
with just the faintest Scottish burr, "but 
I've got to get this new issue out to the 
printer." (Sischy has the exquisite man- 
ners of a Scottish schoolgirl — which she 
once was.) 

Three years ago, Sischy was the subject 
of an admiring two-part profile by Janet 
Malcolm in The New Yorker. S. I. New- 
house, who owns The New Yorker, calls 
Sischy "creative, imaginative, enormously 
impressive. I have nothing but the highest 
regard for her." To Robert Gottlieb, the 



editor of The New Yorker, Sischy is "to- 
tally easy and wonderful, clear, honest, 
and lots of fun." 

Last August, when Sandy and Peter 
Brant, a couple whose fortune comes 
from the newsprint business, bought In- 
terview from the Warhol Foundation for 
$ 1 2 million, they fired its editor, Shelley 
Wanger, and hired Sischy to revive the 
magazine, which has been losing readers, 
advertising, and money. 


curious choice for the job. 
She is a magazine editor 
who admits, without 
shame, that she never reads. "I look for 
pleasure," she says. 
Although Sischy Inal982 
herself is a lucid and 
graceful writer (as 
her recent New 
Yorker piece on the 
photographers Rob- 
ert Mapplethorpe 
and Minor White 
shows), during her 
years as editor of 
Artforum, the writ- 
ing in the magazine 
was sometimes so 
clotted that even her 
mother, a sophisti- 
cated woman with 
an interest in art, 
couldn't read it. 
(Sischy once told Ja- 
net Malcolm that 
she probably 
wouldn't read some 
of it, either, if she 
didn't have to edit 
it.) But to Sandy 
Brant, trying to re- 
vive an ailing Inter- 
view, Sischy is "in 
tune with what's 

young and fresh and unexpected and 
edgy." The new owners' hope is that 
Sischy 's extensive contacts in the art 
world will reestablish Interview as the 
downtown magazine. 

By definition, a magazine editor's posi- 
tion is an authoritarian one, but Sischy is 
almost obsessively democratic. Ask her 
whom she's hired for the top positions at 
Interview, and she is excruciatingly reluc- 
tant to tell you. "I think the assistant edi- 
tors are important, the runners. I consider 
the appointment of David DeNicolo, who 
is 26, as associate editor to be important." 
(For the record, Glenn O'Brien, a veteran 
of both Interview and Artforum, is editor- 
at-large, and Fabien Baron, former art di- 
rector of Italian Vogue, is the creative di- 
rector.) And when you ask Sischy the 
names of some of the "fine" artists she's 
hired to do drawings for the art-listings 

Although Sischy herself 

is a graceful writer, during 

her years at Artfonm the writing 


section of The New Yorker, where she is a 
consulting editor, she answers, "I consid- 
er the artists who do drawings for the oth- 
er sections to be fine artists too." 

There is about Sischy an almost stub- 
bom reluctance to wield power; her 
friend Arthur Danto, the art critic, calls 
Sischy the embodiment of "imagination 
au pouvoir" (loosely translated, "let 
imagination reign"). For Sischy, there are 
ethical dilemmas to be found in almost 
any situation — even in hailing a cab on a 
winter night. (The other party standing in 
the freezing rain usually gets to go first.) 

Sischy says her concern with ethics 
comes from her parents, whom she calls 
"inspiring." She was born in 1952 in 
South Africa to a 
family of Lithua- 
nian-Jewish descent, 
the youngest child 
and only daughter of 
Benjamin Sischy, a 
doctor, and his wife, 
Claire, a speech 
therapist. (One of 
Sischy's brothers be- 
came a doctor, the 
other a lawyer.) "My 
father was a very 
dedicated doctor," 
she says. "1 saw my 
mother's gentleness 
working with kids in 
difficult circum- 
stances, cerebral- 
palsy victims. They 
really moved me." 
Indeed, there is in 
Sischy a residue of 
guilt about her cho- 
sen occupation. "My 
family is so involved 
in concrete and so- 
cial things. Art was a 
reward at the end of 
the day." 

Sischy's interest in art, in the look of 
things, goes back to South Africa, to its 
isolated culture, its spectacular beauty. 
"There was no such thing as television. 
There weren't distractions. It was a lot 
about looking. It was very beautiful, and 
yet there was a conflict between its beauty 
and its internal tensions," a feeling of gen- 
eralized "anxiety," all around her. An un- 
cle of Sischy's by marriage was arrested 
for anti-apartheid activities. Sischy has a 
memory of her father stopping by the road 
to intervene with police who were beating 
a black man. There was the intense guilt 
that comes from being raised in such a 
world. "We used to rent a place on the 
beach. They had shark nets for your side, 
but the people who looked after you [the 
black nannies and maids] had no shark 
nets." Then, in 1960, came the Sharpe- 
ville massacre, and the Sischys, fearing a 

CMWrt tut it 

"bloodbath," emigrated to Edinburgh. 

Sischy remembers the trip on the ship 
Pendennis Castle, the feeling of strange- 
ness. South Africa had been a place of vi- 
brant colors, of luxury. Now there was a 
cold, damp climate, a small row house, 
and chicken only on Sunday. Benjamin 
Sischy had stayed behind in South Africa 
to settle his affairs. Sischy recalls a pivotal 
experience during those first lonely 
months in Edinburgh without him. One 
day, Claire Sischy took her to an exhibit of 
the sculptures of Sir Jacob Epstein, and 
she remembers her mother's mood chang- 
ing, "feeling [the art] helping her." 

Although the family had little money — 
the South African government wouldn't 
permit emigrants to take significant sums 
out of the country — Sischy was enrolled 
in an exclusive private school, George 
Watson's Ladies College, where she was 
one of only two Jewish students. The 
Sischys were not religious, but one teach- 
er, perhaps in an effort to make Sischy 
feel at home, insisted that she accompany 
her to the local temple. "I felt naked and 
vulnerable," Sischy says. "A kid doesn't 
want to be different." 

Despite the oddity of the situation, 
Sischy soon adapted, quickly acquiring a 
Scottish burr. She was, by her own ac- 
count, "a prankster," more interested in 
her friends than in studying. When Sischy 
walked into class in the moming, her 
teacher would say, "Save yourself the 
trouble, Ingrid. Go straight to the

vited to head the radiation-therapy depart- 
ment at Highland Hospital in Rochester. 
New York. "You will do better in America. 
Ingrid," Sischy's teacher told her. 

At first, America seemed eerily like 
South Africa to Sischy. There was "the 
green, the wealthier houses, not gray rows 
of houses and cold," she remembers. "It 
was upper middle class again. There was 
sun, heat. Fruit was back, steak. It was a 
similar life-style to South Africa — a kind 
of openness. Nineteen sixty-eight was also 
the year that Martin Luther King and Bob- 
by Kennedy were shot, the year of the Chi- 
cago Convention. That was back." 

Edinburgh had been "a world of inno- 
cence," she says. "Everybody was the 
same, we all wore uniforms, we would 
talk vaguely about boys." 

Now there was Brighton High School in 
Rochester, and the sixties. At first, Sischy 
felt like an outsider, "but I fit in very fast. 
1 saw my family, my mom and dad, more 
on the outside. It's much easier for a kid 
to fit in. To me, the job was not to focus 
on the dislocation but to get on with the 
job of adapting." Just as she had quickly 
lost her South African accent in Scotland, 
now she assumed an American accent. 
She was elected senior-prom queen and

vice-president of the student council, run- 
ning on a platform advocating "students' 
rights" and making sports "optional." 

the movements from culture to 
culture — what Sischy's friend 
William Wilson, a writer, calls 
"the equivalent of an army- 
brat upbringing" — gave Sischy 
a chameleonlike sensitivity to her environ- 
ment. She seems at times to have an un- 
canny awareness of other people and their 
smallest shifts in mood. One friend de- 
scribes it as an "acute responsiveness"; 
S. I. Newhouse calls Sischy "sympathet- 
ic" It is a sensitivity that disarms. "She 
invites people into what Barthes calls a 
sonorous space,' " says novelist Linsey 
Abrams, another friend. "People like to 
make language with Ingrid." 

In 1970, Sischy entered Sarah Law- 
rence. It was the time of the Student 
Strike for Peace; the women's movement 
*as at its height. For the first time, it was 
permissible to be openly gay on campus. 
One day, Linsey Abrams, a sophomore, 
saw Sischy striding across the Student 
Union. "She had long hair. She had such 
incredible energy that I invited her to 
come and sit with me." The two women 
at up all night talking. "My topic was lit- 
erature," says Abrams. "Her topic was 
art. Life came in as well!" The two even- 
tually became lovers, taking some of the 

same courses. Both took Grace Paley's 
writing course. Sischy wrote two short 
stories, which both Paley and Abrams re- 
member because they made the other stu- 
dents laugh. Somehow, the reaction to the 
stories, which were about her childhood 
in South Africa, made Sischy feel 
"guilty," and she never wrote fiction 
again. When Sischy failed to hand in her 
work, Paley remembers saying to another 
faculty member, "She's too busy becom- 
ing a good person." 

Being open about her lesbianism has 
been crucial to Sischy. In her recent New 
Yorker essay on Robert Mapplethorpe and 
Minor White, Sischy declared her homo- 
sexuality, probably a first for a critic in 
that magazine. "I felt 1 owed it to my read- 
ers. It was necessary to tell them where I 
was coming from. Criticism is so often an 
authoritarian thing. I find honesty about 
sexuality an utter necessity for my emo- 
tional survival." 

For a number of years, Sischy kept the 
knowledge of her homosexuality from her 
parents. "They met my friends, my lovers, 
as friends. I didn't say anything one way 
or another. I gave my parents that dignity. 
I gave myself that dignity. Yet I was in- 
credibly close to them. Eventually, 1 felt it 
was damaging to my relationship with 
them, damaging to me, to have this as a 
secret. If your relationships have to be 
hidden, underground, from your father, 
brothers, mother, how can you in a real, 

deep way, in a full way, feel totally okay 
about the relationships you're in?" 

Then, one day, "my mom happened to 
come to town. We were sitting, talking 
around the important relationship in my 
life. She asked me a question. I said, 'I've 
got to tell you this.' It was all right," 
Sischy says. 


ah Lawrence after three and 
a half years, in 1973, and 
went to work in an art gal- 
lery in Manhattan with the idea that she 
would eventually do something "useful," 
like medicine or psychoanalysis. She then 
took a job handling circulation at the 
Print Collector's Newsletter, supporting 
her "art habit" by also working as a wait- 
ress. She ended up as an associate editor, 
writing reviews that caught the attention 
of figures in the art world. 

She left that job to work at the Guggen- 
heim, going over party lists and writing 
press releases — a job for which Sischy the 
tomboy had to wear a skirt and panty 
hose. It was the "outfit" she hated most 
about the job. "I can't even Xerox under 
these conditions," she told a friend. She 
was fired after a few weeks and celebrated 
by throwing her skirt and panty hose into 
the garbage. "It was very symbolic. That 
was the end of adapting. For the first time, 
the chameleon thing was gone." 
To this day, Sischy refuses to compro-

mise on her taste in fashion. She betrays 
an uncharacteristic hint of annoyance 
when a journalist remarks on her glasses. 
"We live in a culture where people are not 
allowed to wear broken things, to make 
mistakes," she says. "I'm not making a 
statement; I'm just being comfortable. If 
my glasses are taken as a statement, then I 
say 1 should go out and buy new glasses." 
Anyway, says Sischy, laughing, her taste 
in fashion isn't eccentric. "Everybody 
else's is!" 

Sischy was rescued from unemploy- 
ment when she was hired as director of 
Printed Matter, a nonprofit organization 
devoted to printing "artists' " books as 
opposed to "art" books. The artist Sol 
LeWitt was on the board that hired her. 
"We had read her reviews at Print Collec- 
tor's Newsletter; we knew her capabili- 
ties," says LeWitt. "And she was young — 
she hadn't been around long enough to be 
contaminated by the art world." At Print- 
ed Matter, Sischy got to know up-and- 
coming artists like jenny Holzer, who col- 
lected some of her own sayings in a book 
that sold for about $2. "We didn't want 
anything to get too precious," Sischy says. 
"There were to be no limited editions." 
Sischy made Printed Matter more viable 
financially. She went to book fairs, ap- 
plied for — and got — grants, spent time in 
the organization's store selling to custom- 
ers. She lugged boxes of documents to the 
IRS in a successful attempt to get Printed 
Matter its crucial nonprofit status. "To 

this day," says Sischy, "it is one of the 
very few alternative spaces which sur- 
vived without bureaucratization and with 
some of its original philosophy." 

In 1978, Sischy won an internship at the 
Museum of Modem Art. She got to curate 
her own exhibit, "In the Twenties: Portraits 
From the Photography Department," and 
assisted the curators on two others, includ- 
ing one on Ansel Adams. At moma, she 
gained the admiration of an important 
man, )ohn Szarkowski, the director of the 
photography department, who describes 
Sischy as "full of juice, brave and honest. 
She was not afraid to let people know 
what she didn't know," Szarkowski says. 
"She's got a wonderful mind." 

Sischy was becoming a fixture on the 
art scene, getting to know older artists 
who would later prove useful connections 
and younger artists who would later be- 
come famous. In 1978. she joined an all- 
girl band, the Disbands. Sischy "played" 
the radio. The strange group included the 
artist Barbara Kruger, for a time; Martha 
Wilson, director of Franklin Furnace Ar- 
chives, a nonprofit organization that col- 
lects "perishable" art; Donna Henes, the 
performance artist with a mystical bent 
who does celebrations of the spring equi- 
nox each year; Ilona Granet, an artist; and 
Diane Torr, a performance artist. 

In one number composed by Sischy and 
Torr called "Get Rebel," a protest against 
nuclear war, Sischy played the hammer 
and sang in a Scottish burr, "I gotta dis- 

ease/ the clinic can- 
nie fix/ We gotta 
disease/ that no- 
body kicks/ 
(Chorus) Get 
rebel. ..." 

"I tell you, we 
were terribleV says 
Sischy today. 

The group did get 
some bookings, 
however. At an arts 
festival in Italy, they 
ran into trouble 
with their song 
"Look at My Dick," 
sung while they 
twirled garden hos- 
es. "The Italians 
take penises very se- 
riously," says Mar- 
tha Wilson. "When 
we got to Rome, we 
were asked not to 
sing it." So bad was 
the group that when 
Donna Henes dislo- 
cated her knee dur- 
ing one perform- 
ance and started 
screaming, it took 
several minutes for 
band members and 
the audience to real- 
ize her cries weren't 
part of the act. Finally, in 1982, when only 
one person showed up for a performance 
in Van Cortlandt Park, Henes "foresaw" 
the group's end, and the women broke out 
a bottle of champagne to celebrate. 


■ wealthy Englishman with an inter- 
est in art and a background in in- 
vestment banking, and Amy Baker 
Sandback, who had been on the 
board of Printed Matter, bought 
Artforum and were looking for a new edi- 
tor. Korner, who was then one of the or- 
ganizers of Italy's Fotografia Venezia ex- 
hibition, had met Sischy at a dinner party 
at the Le Witts', and she invited him to see 
some photographs at the Museum of 
Modem Art. He was impressed. "She was 
very fresh," Komer says. "Everyone else 
had vested interests. We knew where they 
stood. She was in formation. She had 
done a year or two of remarkable exhibits 
at the Museum of Modem Art; she was a 
protegee of John Szarkowski 's." 

For years, Artforum had been run by a 
kind of feudal oligarchy, forever warring 
within itself. In 1977, art historian Joseph 
Masheck had taken over as editor. Widely 
respected among academics, the magazine 
was austerely intellectual, with strict ideas 
of what was progressive and avant-garde. 
It was filled with angular shapes and 
black paintings; paintings with human 
figures in them — or with any image in 
them at all, for that matter — were rare. 

NEW YORK/|ANUARY 29, 1990 



The kind of sculpture that Artfontm cele- 
brated was exemplified by the work of 
Richard Serra — "pure" forms like his 
Tilted Arc, recently removed from the 
Federal Plaza after protests by office 
workers and community groups. The 
magazine was also extremely "Ameri- 
can" — male American, showing mostly 
the work of American men. 

Sischy was 27 when she became its edi- 
tor, in 1979, "a little waif of a thing," re- 
members Arthur Danto. "[The Artfontm 
crowd] had been rough, tough characters, 
fierce personalities, visionary people," he 
says. "They were all the barracudas of the 
art world. This noodle comes along. She 
turns out to be more than a match for 

Sischy says Artfontm had a "very dicta- 
torial and strict editorial sense. I don't be- 
lieve in those rules." 

She proceeded to revolutionize the idea 
of what an art magazine could be. For the 
cover of her first issue, she reproduced an 
old cover from VW, a magazine of the for- 
ties avant-garde. The cover, by Max Emst, 
was torn and coffee-stained. For the in- 
side, Sischy asked thirteen artists to do 
"projects." |enny Holzer and Peter Nadin 
did some signs; William Wegman contrib- 
uted photographs. There were pieces by 
Laurie Anderson, joseph Beuys, the Eng- 
lish conceptual artists Gilbert and 
George, and the editors of the avant-garde 
magazine lust Another Asshole. The edi- 
tors of Heresies, the feminist art journal, 
designed a game board that was a blister- 
ing satire on how to get ahead in the art 
world. In her first editor's note, Sischy 
spoke of "these precious pages" and what 
she hoped to do with them. 

There was a quality of innocent experi- 
mentation about the magazine, of youth- 
ful surprise. In 1981, Sischy put twelve 
paper cups from a Greek coffee shop on 
the cover of an issue that contained an es- 
say by Rene Ricard, one of the Warhol 
crowd, called "Not About Julian Schna- 
bel." The coffee cups were a send-up of 
Schnabel's painting Blue Nude With 
Sword, and the legend on one of the 
cups — it's our pleasure to serve you — 
could be read as an ironic commentary on 
Schnabel's success. "The Ricard piece sig- 
naled the new era in art criticism," says 
Sischy. "Someone was talking about 
painting again, capturing the atmosphere 
of a generation which loved painting and 
iconography — and the frenzy of the deal- 
ers selling the new art." 

On succeeding covers, Sischy featured 
a subway token and a model wearing an 
Issey Miyake dress. There was a record by 
Laurie Anderson, who had not yet be- 
come famous, inside that issue. 

In 1986, Sischy began running columns 
on fashion, music, and advertising. She 
hired an artist, Barbara Kruger, to write 

on television, up to then virtually unheard 
of in an art magazine. 


■ the right time and the right place. 
There was a revolution going on in 
the art world. The boundaries be- 
tween high and low culture were 
breaking down. Art was becoming 
fashionable again — and a good invest- 
ment. Every real-estate developer and ar- 
bitrageur was buying it. Foreign money 
was important, too, and Sischy was will- 
ing to look beyond American art. 

She wasn't afraid to tangle with some of 
the icons of the old guard. One day at an 
opening, she told Richard Serra she wasn't 
necessarily on his 
side in the Tilted Arc 
controversy (or 
against him, either, 
for that matter), and 
Serra began scream- 
ing at her. She also 
ran afoul of William 
Rubin, director 
emeritus of the Mu- 
seum of Modern 
Art's Department of 
Painting and Sculp- 
ture, and Kirk Var- 
nedoe, its present di- 
rector, when 
Thomas McEvilley, 
one of Artforum's 
critics, wrote a piece 
calling their exhibi- 
tion on the affinity 
of primitive and 
modern art ethno- 
centric. "This exhi- 
bition shows West- 
ern egotism still as 
unbridled as in the 
centuries of colo- 
nialism and souve- 
nirism," McEvilley 

Sischy was developing an almost leg- 
endary reputation as an editor, staying up 
all night to coddle distraught writers, run- 
ning across the street to fetch them coffee 
and doughnuts. At the beginning, at least, 
her editing style was somewhat "Byzan- 
tine," says Gary Indiana, former art critic 
for the Village Voice and author of the 
novel Horse Crazy. "I had been told by a 
friend that if you have anything especially 
good in a piece, put it at the end because 
Ingrid would inevitably put it at the front. 
She'd look at the last paragraph and say, 
"This would make a brilliant beginning.' " 

When things went wrong with an article, 
Sischy would be caught in a morass of guilt 
and democratic tendencies. "She would 
find a way of telling you it was her failing 
that it wasn't going to run," says Indiana. 

The result of Sischy 's editing style was a

lot of bad writing, a kind of willful obscu- 
rantism. A random sampling of the Janu- 
ary 1 986 issue showed no fewer than ten 
different instances of aggregate words 
separated by virgules — those construc- 
tions beloved of semioticians, like "politi- 
cal/commercial," "artificially/artistical- 
ly," "unthinkable/unspeakable," "pass/ 
fail." "The issue had a secret theme," 
Sischy jokes. "It was a special issue on 
slashes, testing our readers' subliminal ca- 
pacities." Once, when the pieces in a se- 
ries seemed to be running out of space, 
Sischy just made the typeface smaller and 
smaller until it was nearly indecipherable. 
"We used to laugh about the fact that if 
you scissored the magazine up and ran- 
domly put it back to- 
gether, you wouldn't 
know the differ- 
ence," says Stewart 
Greenspan, an art 
writer for the Ob- 
server, who says he 
"gave up reading 
Artfontm during the 
seventies and 

Sischy defends the 
bad writing. "You 
get more from terri- 
ble pieces about art 
written by writers 
who know about art 
than from a good 
writer who doesn't 
know about art. If 
that person can re- 
veal something 
much deeper than a 
'skimmer' who 
might do it pretty, 
do you cut that out? 
I say no." 

"She came in 
there like a mall kid 
without a grammar 
book," says Joseph Masheck, whom she 
replaced, "glitz-vulgarizing" it "to build it 
up as a journalistic commodity." 

After Sischy took over Artfontm, "there 
was no general public interest in the mag- 
azine because it was unreadable," says 
Hilton Kramer, editor of The New Criteri- 
on. "The intellectual content was radical- 
ly diminished under [Sischy's] editorship. 
The magazine wasn't meant to be read. 
The ads were more important than the ar- 
ticles." (Sischy and Kramer are often on 
the opposite sides of issues these days. 
Sischy attacked Kramer in her piece on 
Mapplethorpe and White. And before 
that, he was attacked in Artfontm by 
Thomas Lawson — the article was called 
"Hilton Kramer, an Appreciation" — and 
by Donald Kuspit, who compared him to

meant to be read; they are meant to be 
seen. Art magazines are, above all, trade 
magazines, and many are not held to ordi- 
nary standards of editing. Artforum, like 
Arts Magazine (circulation 27,000), Art 
News (circulation 76,098), and Art in 
America (circulation 63,161), is about ad- 
vertising. Open Artforum and it's the ads 
that jump out at you from the thick, 
sweet-smelling pages. Under Sischy, Art- 
forum became the magazine to be seen by 
everyone in the art world — "everyone" 
being a small number of artists, the collec- 
tors who could afford to buy their work, 
and the dealers who sold it. Artforum 's 
circulation is not audited, but its publish- 
er, Anthony Korner, says the readership 
under Sischy increased by one third, to 
"about 27,000." 

Whatever the quality of the writing in 
the magazine, Sischy remained free of the 
odor of accommodation that attaches to 
some editors of art magazines, refusing to 
curry favor with advertisers by running fa- 
vorable reviews of artists. Her close friend 
Julian Schnabel — "She's family to me," 
he says — claims he never got a good re- 
view in Artforum 
while Sischy was 
editor. In fact, 
Schnabel remem- 
bers with particular 
pain one review by 
Donald Kuspit, "al- 
most accusing me of 
[greed, as in] 
Pound's usura." 
(Kuspit calls this "a 
grotesque distor- 
tion. As a matter of 
fact," he says, "I've 
written about him 
favorably.") There 
was another review, 
by Lisa Liebmann 
(who had been 
Sischy's compan- 
ion), "where, if you 
linked a couple of 
sentences, it was 
about a |ewboy 
painting crosses," 
says Schnabel. (Not 
everyone would 
agree with that 

"I never had a 
painting of mine on the cover of Art- 
forum," he says, sitting in his studio at 
3:30 one afternoon wearing gold-and- 
black-striped pajamas and frayed bed- 
room slippers. "I would never trade my 
friendship with her for an article in a mag- 
azine." (Schnabel is one of those who sug- 
gested Sischy for the Interview job.)

appeared in 77it* New Yorker, Gary Indi-

Voice] attacking Ingrid. Most people 
would never have spoken to you again. It

Of course, not everybody sees Sischy in 
such a favorable light. "That she is being 
painted as a saint, that this is a standard of 
virtue, says everything about the art 
world," says Hilton Kramer. "Because of 
her association with The New Yorker, In- 
terview, and Artforum, there are a great 
many jobs, a great deal of patronage to be 
dispensed. People don't want to commit 
professional suicide in public." 

by 1987, sischy was under- 
going a kind of personal 
crisis. Her world was being 
decimated by aids. She felt 
a constant and "dramatic 
sense of loss in terms of the 
people I spent my evenings with. So many 
of [them] were sick and afraid. More and 
more, I would wake up in the moming 
and think it was 
time for me to stop 
editing this maga- 
zine." She decided 
to leave Artforum. 
Her last issue — dat- 
ed February 1988— 
was a rather melan- 
choly meditation on 
"Age"; many people 
Sischy knew weren't 
going to have an old 
age. There were con- 
tributions from Ar- 
thur Danto, Roberta 
Smith, Carter Rat- 
al • cliff, Kay Larson, 
tile pi6€eS the Guerrilla Girls. 

and Sidney Geist. 

Oil "Atfft" Instead of page 
un ngc numbers, Sischy 
printed the contrib- 
Ollt Of utor's age at the bot- 
tom of the page. 

She began to 
write on photogra- 
phy, and to research 
and write a piece on 
aids, for The New 
Yorker, becoming a 
consulting editor and staff writer in 1 988. 
(She was also a consulting editor at HG 
for a year.) At The New Yorker, she has 
helped redesign the "Goings On About 
Town" section, suggesting writers and 
artists to help liven it up. Once again, her 
connections have proved useful. She got 
Schnabel, a man with a big ego, to do a 
tiny drawing of Marlon Brando, with 
Schnabel 's signature nearly indistinguish- 
able. Lucas Samaras, another close friend.

did a self-portrait; so did Louise Bour- 
geois. Mike Glier drew his wife, jenny 
Holzer; Leon Golub drew his wife, Nancy 
Spero. Some people welcomed the new, 
lively look of the magazine, but others 
found the drawings murky, the prose la- 
bored. And to some traditionalists, the 
new design, with its downtown flavor, 
was a sign of an ominous "trendification" 
of the magazine. Says Robert Gottlieb, 
"The notion of The New Yorker as a 
downtown, trendy' magazine is really hi- 
larious. You mean [trendy] like Cynthia 
Ozick's essay on T. S. Eliot or Robert 
Caro's pieces on Lyndon Johnson?" 

In the spring of 1988, Sischy moved out 
of the townhouse she had shared for seven 
years with a woman friend. Sischy's apart- 
ment in the West Village consists of one 
tiny, chaste room almost entirely filled by a 
huge metal bed made for her by Julian 
Senna be!. The bed is curved and gorgeous 
(perhaps Schnabel will ultimately be re- 
membered for his furniture). The only other 
furniture is a small table and a chair. Al- 
though Sischy herself isn't a collector, every 
object seems carefully chosen and placed. 
There's a framed Christmas card from Ni- 
cola De Maria on the wall by the bed and a 
photograph above the fireplace of the late 
collector Sam Wagstaff, Robert Mapple- 
thorpe's lover, as a young man in his naval 
uniform. There are two photographs from 
the turn of the century of little girls, their 
identities unknown. "My love of looking at 
photographs is so often about lost time," 
says Sischy, "about lime past." 

For now, Sischy will work at Interview 
three weeks out of the month and contin- 
ue as a consulting editor at The New York- 
er, writing her aids piece and her photog- 
raphy criticism. Her vision of the future 
Interview is typically idealistic. For her 
first issue, appearing in time for Valen- 
tine's Day, Sischy has called on some of 
her old contacts to make roses for the 
reader. "I wanted to give the readers 
something special, specifically for them, a 
valentine of a dozen roses." Schnabel 
made a rose, and so did Alex Katz, 
Francesco Clemente, Sarah Charlesworth, 
Pat Steir, and James Nares. Sol LeWitt did 
a calendar for the back — every month a 
different artist will create one. There are 
interviews with people who have kept 
many cats and with a woman who writes 
greeting cards, as well as with Dennis 
Hopper, model Toukie Smith, and actress 
Lorraine Bracco. There won't be just jour- 
nalists doing the interviews, Sischy says, 
but people who are "wonderful conversa- 
tionalists." like Julian Schnabel. The mag- 
azine will be "a mixture of the blindingly 
famous and the blindingly forgotten, a 
great soup. I'm interested in personality, 
not just celebrity. 

"Interview is the only magazine that 
doesn't have to be anything," Sischy says. 
"It will be a safe harbor for people to speak. 
People end up saying their most interesting 
things when they feel safe." ■

to those soggy treks: this handsome

Sotheby's has furniture and art from 
some of America's grandest houses and 
private collections — from Charleston to 
Colonial Williamsburg — from January 24 
to 27. Out of the nearly 200 lots of Ameri- 
can silver on lanuary 24. the pair of turn- 
of-the-century Tiffany candelabra in lot 
66 caught my eye immediately ($10,000 
to $15,000). In the Jan- 
uary 25 session high- 
lighting decorative and 
topographical prints, 
you'll find Yankee Doo- 
dle, or the American Sa- 
tan, after |oseph 
Wright, from 1780 (lot 
601. $800 to $1,200). 
and a wonderful series 
of Currier and Ives sail- 
ing prints, including the 
study of the yacht Amer- 
ica (lot 644. $800 to 
$1,200). Audubon 
prints from his Birds of 
America series also are 
in abundance. 

At the lanuary 26 ses- 
sion, the collection of 
noted dealer and collec- 
tor George Schoellkopf 

goes on the block. There are a lot of excel- 
lent pieces here, including a carved paint- 
ed-pine eagle from 1880 (lot 922, $1,500 
to $2,500) and a nineteenth-century por- 
trait, Young Boy in a Red Costume With a 
Whip and a Bunch of Roses (lot 923. 
$8,000 to $12,000). There's also a por- 
trait of a young man by Sheldon Peck, an 
obscure artist whose 60 unsigned works 
are only now being formally attributed 
(lot 957. $7,000 to $10,000). The Chip-

"No, No 111 Take It" 
"Really That's Okay 111 Take It" 

A wagon that's capable of capturing a drivers 
fancy may sound far-fetched. But in the case of the 
new 405 Sportswagon, it's a reality. 

Inspired by the award-winning 405 sedan, 
the front-wheel drive Sportswagon features a respon- 
sive overhead cam 4-cylinder engine monitored by a 
Bosch motronic computer, fully independent suspen- 
sion, an economically designed interior, and an 
impressive array of standard safety features. All of 
which combines to provide a wagon that's so much fun 
to drive it could cause a little bickering between even 
the most happily married couple. 

The 405 Sportswagon also affords you the 

safety of a 3-year/36,000-mile Bumper-to-Bumper 
limited warranty, a 5-year/50,0OO- 
mile limited powertrain warranty** 
and one of the most comprehensive 
roadside assistance plans: t^^.*** 

So call 1-800-447-2882 
and arrange to test drive the new 
1990 405 Sportswagon. Once you own one, you won't 
want to leave home without it.

". . .In Mike Figgis's svelte new thriller Internal Affairs, Richard 
Gere has reversed the polarities of his earlier screen image. . ." 


shown a limited but distinct talent: 
Smarmily good-looking — beautiful, some 
people said — he reminded women of what 
they found sleazy but irresistible in narcis- 
sistically handsome men. Gere snaked his 
way through such films as American Gig- 
olo; he seemed to be acting to women, 
challenging them, teasing them. A few di- 

.ctors used him effectively as a bastard 
who reformed (in An Officer and a Gen- 

man, for instance), but in a sense, he 
was always playing gigolos; he couldn't 
play much else. A leading man, if he is to 

hold the screen, needs at least a touch of 
earnestness, and a sense of right. Gere 
was all vicious smiles; he slid away from 
everything, and soon the audience (in- 
cluding women) slid away from him. 

But now, after a string of flops, the 
leading man has been reborn as a villain. 
In the svelte new thriller Internal Affairs, 
Gere has reversed the polarities of his ear- 
lier screen image. Rather than playing a 
self-involved heel who is not a bad guy 
deep down, he plays a charming fellow, a 
Los Angeles cop who does favors for ev- 
eryone and who, underneath, is complete 
slime. Murderer, adulterer, corrupter, be- 
trayer of friends — Gere is home at last! 
The movie, directed by Mike Figgis 
{Stormy Monday), a talented Brit with a 

glamorously "dark" and looming premon- 
itory style, is hardly plausible on the plot 
level, but from moment to moment Inter- 
nal Affairs is tense, exciting, and fun. And 
Gere, who looks better than ever with his 
graying hair, gives free rein to his talent for 
insincerity and insinuation. The perform- 
ance is an ironic triumph but a triumph 
nonetheless. His Dennis Peck sweet-talks 
women and lies to everyone, but he delivers 
the goods — in bed and out of it, too, in the 
form of envelopes filled with cash, which 
he offers to the ex-wives he has installed 
in comfortable Valley houses, where they 

raise his many children. Dennis is a family 
man who hates yuppies. 

The dialogue that Henry Bean has writ- 
ten for him is obscene not only in words 
but in feeling. Dennis revels in his power 
to arouse women; it amuses him that he 
can tum them on so easily. Women, 
knowing what he is, accept him; only a 
tough female cop (Laurie Met calf, in an 
expert and likable performance) refuses 
to be charmed, perhaps because she's a 
lesbian (a nasty script idea, but one sees 
the point of it). For Dennis, the real point 
of his success with women is that he can 
taunt and manipulate other men with it. 
As you may have gathered, the character 
is a male fantasy — macho-paranoid divi- 
sion — not a female one: Dennis, with his 

soft hands, is the inexorable seducer who 
will take away a man's wife. Nonsense? 
Sure, but is there a man, however intelli- 
gent, who won't get a buzz out of it? 

The motor of the plot is the choking anxi- 
ety felt by Andy Garcia's Raymond Avila, a 
young and ambitious cop from Internal Af- 
fairs who is investigating this sunshine-land 
Mephistopheles. Trying to throw Raymond 
off, Dennis plays tricks on the young His- 
panic officer (vilely, he counts on Ray- 
mond's hot jealousy as a cultural certainty). 
He convinces Raymond that his young, 
pouty Anglo wife (Nancy Travis), a beauty 
with tousled hair, is sleeping with him, and 
he whispers filthy rhapsodies to Raymond 
about the pleasures she is having. Garcia, 
slender, with a small mouth and an air of 
concentrated alertness, gives a quiet, al- 
most invisible performance, until he 

At first, the houses and apartments 
seem much too swank for policemen, and 
nothing quite makes sense. Dennis the 
fabulously successful operator somehow 
runs vice rackets, arranges assassinations, 
corrupts half of the Los Angeles police 
force, sleeps with many women, and also 
performs his duties as a cop. All at once. 
But movie excitement is the issue here, 
not realism. Internal Affairs is emotionally 
potent as a nightmare of malign control. 
Figgis brings a charged atmosphere and 
an eroticized sense of danger to the story: 
He works mostly at night, often very close 
up, with an uncanny use of silence to pro- 
duce tension. The movie is physically 
alive, and everyone looks great — the two 
stars, with their fashionable brush cuts; 
the beautiful young actresses playing Den- 
nis's women, caught betwen desire and 
fear; William Baldwin (Alec's kid broth- 
er), with his hunted-animal look, as a 
young cop beginning to fall apart. Figgis 
has an erotic style in the best sense — ev- 
eryone glows. 

Yet hisses were reported at one of the ad- 
vance screenings. For some women, this 
sort of macho confrontation in which wom- 
en are pawns to be possessed and slapped 
around is the kind of nightmare from which 
they have long been trying to awake. But a 
movie is not a prescription for life; such 
conflicts are essential to almost every good 
underworld thriller, not to mention a lot of 
underworld existence. At his most cynical, 
the Richard Gere character says to Andy

tongue, the language of machismo. The 
moment has startling power. 


nous fat girl with the nasty gaze of a devil 
doll. In the odd, arresting, but unsatisfy- 
ing Sweetie, the first feature directed by 
the New Zealand-born |ane Campion, 
Sweetie shows up at her sister's house 
with her depraved boyfriend, eats every- 
thing in sight, makes love noisily, and 
throws panic into the air. Suggestions that 
she leave or desist are met with feline 
growls and vamping dirty looks. It's hard 
to tell whether Sweetie is wildly liberated 
or insane, or both, but Genevieve Lemon, 
hugely fleshy, with dark eye shadow and 
bits of lace at her wrists, is an alarming 
and hilarious travesty of insatiability. 

This Australian film has been hailed as 
a masterpiece of perversity and suburban 
surrealism. It does, I admit, have an air of 
unnerving preoccupation. Campion seizes 
on oddities — for instance, the way a lock 
of a man's hair falls into a question mark 
on his forehead. The movie is built of such 
signs, and of nightmarish memories, mo- 
ments of congealed eroticism, a sense of 
the dislocations of family life. But Campi- 
on's is not a lyrical style — Sweetie stub- 
bornly refuses to get going and come to- 
gether. Much of the time we are looking at 
the rigid brow and prissy mouth of Karen 
Colston, who plays Sweetie's spooked 
older sister. The movie's mysteries may 
interlock as visual metaphors, but they 
don't interlock emotionally. 


and everyone who has admired Roger & 
Me (including mot, whose review she 
razzed), Pauline Kael ended her pan in the 
January 8 New Yorker with the following: 
" Roger & Me uses its leftism as a superior 
attitude. Members of the audience can 
laugh at ordinary working people and still 
feel they're taking a politically correct po- 
sition." This sounds devastating, and I 
suppose I should be mortified. There's 
only one thing wrong with it: Roger & Me 
isn't about "ordinary working people." 
Most of it is about the Reaganite illusion- 
makers, the shuck-and-jive media types 
who came to the fore in Flint, Michigan, 
in the eighties and tried to distract the city 
and themselves from the city's gruesome 
economic realities. Not "working people" 
but make-work people — uplifters, boost- 
ers, urban renewalists. Many films have 
chronicled the problems of the unem- 
ployed. Roger & Me is the first to chroni- 
cle the doings of those who tried to con- 
vince us that the unemployed weren't 
there. wm

various semi-imaginary 
figures from the history of 
portraiture, is witty, iron- 
ic, fun. And also about one

what feats of aquatic ballet 
Sherman can perform in 
very shallow waters.

era, not for an audience; the photograph 
hangs on the wall and performs an ironic 
inversion of the social role of Great Art. 
In other words, it's caricature. But so was 
the simulated art I saw in Laguna Beach. 
Why is it kitsch on the stage and avant- 
garde in the gallery? 

much reason to stick around. Faced with 
multiple versions of Sherman's deadpan 
pallor, you find yourself thinking wistfully 
about the miraculous depth of character 
in Western painting. Obsession with one's 
own image is like being on a roller coaster 
that never stops. It's fun, fun, fun until the 
dark comes on. (150 Greene Street; 

through February 3.) 

BY DESIGN: Shirley laffe's Moroccan Dream. 

maiden, a friar, a black-suited lord draped 
in gold chains — Sherman gets to play in 
ihe fertile imagery of art history, which 
has the advantage over other phantom 
forms she has cited {film noir, fashion, the 
lineage of the femme fatale, and recently, 
Godzi'/ia-style movie apocalypses) in of- 
fering plenty of in jokes. You imagine you 
can recognize the painters who provided 
her with models: Raphael, Ingres, Cara- 
vaggio. Sherman wants you to see the 
seams: the phony skull form, the bulbous 
false nose and obviously fake eyebrows, 
the chestnut hair strands tied to her own 
darker hair. You're supposed to reflect on 
ihe essential falsehood of images, while 
giggling at the ridiculous things Sherman 
does to herself. 

But these pictures are much less con- 
vincingly commentaries on art than kiss- 
ing cousins to the living tableaux I remem- 
ber from my high-school excursions to the 
Laguna Beach Festival of the Arts every 
summer in California. The difference is 

Like the tableau actors, Sherman 
charms with stories and little-girl-dress- 
up contortions. Her simple face, with its 
chameleon bones, threatens no one, in- 
cluding the great artists whose stature she 
borrows and whose images she converts 
to amusing farce. You are asked to meas- 
ure the psychic distance between the orig- 
inals and the waif who impersonates 
them; in that gap is plenty of opportunity 
for laughter. No real tramp was ever as 
endearing as Charlie Chaplin's creation of 
one, because Chaplin the artist was so ob- 
viously not a tramp. 

The thought of Sherman as a sex god- 
dess was pretty funny. This series looks 
more "important" because the gap be- 
tween impersonator and impersonated — 
between artist manque and master — is so 
vast. After a couple of turns around the 
gallery, though, the joke fades. The harsh 
coloration of her photography creates an 
experience hostile to the pleasures of 
looking; once you get the wit, there isn't 

Shirley |affe, 66, makes 
her New York solo debut 
in a show at Holly Solo- 
mon, yet it's impossible to 
think of her as a green 
newcomer. Jaffe is an 
American who has spent 
most of her adult career in 
Paris, showing regularly. 
A lifetime of thought and 
experience bubbles up in 
her paintings. Their most 
striking feature, besides 
their uncanny sense of 
grace, is their joy. 

loy and pleasure are dif- 
ferent creatures. Pleasure 
can't abide pain. loy in its 
^^^^ deepest sense is a kind of 
absolution for the trou- 
bling aspects of existence. 
It's also a state of personal 

relinquishment in which 

the self and its dreams and nightmares 
find refuge in the Gothic architecture of 
being, where ego is just a little gargoyle on 
the roofline. 

laffe's better pictures (the best is Mo- 
roccan Dream) are intensely mindful of 
Matisse, particularly his paper cutouts, 
which patented the pattern in which color 
becomes a chip of abstract form with an 
edge that bends and flows under emotion- 
al tension, laffe's color chips dance across 
a white field like motes under a micro- 
scope. Earlier pictures in this show place 
color on color, suggesting that her discov- 
ery of the liberating effect of white is a 
very recent breakthrough. 

It's one thing to mimic the style but an- 
other to pull it off as an experience. In a 
picture like Moroccan Dream, }affe sets a 
tone and follows it through. She is aware 
of the dialogues that have gone on 
through the century about abstract form 
and pure contemplation. Light and the 
cosmos of sensation is her starting

(724 Fifth Avenue; through February 10.) 


so in California, where he is a fixture in 
the university galleries, Peter Shelton is 
an academic minimalist with a high aim. 
He hits his mark with floalinghouse 
DEADMAN, a subtle poem about mass 
and weight, which was first seen at the 
University of Massachusetts in 1986. 

When you enter Louver Gallery, your 
immediate task is to figure out a compli- 
cated system of wire cables tied to various 
iron objects — a huge pair of iron booties, 
a cubic chair, a perforated bed — stationed 
around the gallery. Wires also run to a 
concrete gingerbread-type figure of a man 
on the floor: the "deadman." Following 
the wires, your eye tracks to pulleys on the 
ceiling, and finally, by rounding several 
comers, to a Japanese-style pavilion made 
of cedar and shoji panels. 

The pavilion doesn't touch ground. 
Lighter even than Japanese houses built 
on stilts, this one literally floats — counter- 
weighted by the "deadman." When you 
walk down its hallway, your footsteps 
start a shimmy in the structure, nearly 
toppling you off your feet, confounding 
your expectations of stability. The pavil- 
ion seems to be cruising in midair. 

Language is crucial to this piece. The 
"deadman" of the title makes you recall 
other words: dead load, deadfall, dead 
center, dead end, dead reckoning, dead- 
wood, even, 1 suppose, deadly sins. They 
all imply enormous mass, or else absolute 
limits and endings: Death is the ultimate 
physical boundary (a corpse), and is also 
the "dead end" of existence. 

This physical experience has metaphysi- 
cal overtones. The "deadman" holds up a 
floating house that shelters and comforts its 
inhabitants, that comes with strong life as- 
sociations, that shakes you up and prevents 
you from getting a firm footing, and that 
seems unnervingly free, like a magic carpet. 

Triumphantly, the metaphor grows out 
of your sensual (as much as your intellectu- 
al) progress through the structure. You feel 
death (the "deadman") as life's limit and 
counterweight, the end that allows the be- 
ginning. You know the quivering uncer- 
tainties of your path through the house 
are a consequence of freedom. (Stability 
equals death.) Gently, the artist coaxes 
you to re-experience the gift of existence. 
This house of white light and air, swinging 
in space, is a beautiful thing. With each 
shaky step, you give thanks. ( 1 30 Prince 
Street; through February 3.) ™

. .The Image gets everything right. Sensibility and Sense invokes 
the noisy ghosts of Hellman, McCarthy, and Diana Trilling. . ." 

my only complaint about The Image 
(Saturday, January 27, and other dates; 10 
to 11:30 p.m.; HBO) is the dumb title. It's 
an otherwise nifty little TV movie on the 
TV-news biz, every bit as shrewd as 
Broadcast News and a lot less self-right- 
eous than Network. Inside this small 
space, all the parts are precision-tooled, 
and the players spin to a point, a scruple, 
a recognition, and a transformation. 

Albert Finney is |ason Cromwell, a 
combination of Walter Cronkite and Peter 
lennings, the anchorface of a network 
news magazine called Here and Now. He 
is, according to a Time cover story, "the 
only man America really trusts." He 
wouldn't have reached this eminence 
without his workaholic producer Irv 
Mickelson (|ohn Mahoney). Accepting an 
Emmy, Jason says of his relationship with 
lrv, "I was the older brother he never 
had— or wanted." They're busy, when we 
meet them, on stories about a black man 
on death row who may be innocent, a sav- 
mgs-and-loan scandal, an operagoing doc- 
tor who masterminds a million-dollar 
Medicare scam, and some skinheads. 

Abetting |ason and Irv in the son of am- 
bush journalism in which 60 Minutes 
used to specialize are Swoosie Kurtz, in 
wonderful form as a frenzied executive 
producer worried she might "lose my job, 
my career, my table at Elaine's"; Kathy 
Baker as a research director with whom 
lason has a doomed fling; Spalding Gray 
as a sleazy network veep; and Brett Cullen 
as the obligatory pretty boy/airhead. Also 
on hand are Marsha Mason, as (ason's ne- 
glected wife, and a teddy bear, Irv's best 

When the man on death row turns out 
to be guilty, the Here and Now news team 
rushes on air with the S&L story before 
it's ready. A falsely accused banker com- 
mits suicide. Irv feels worse about this 
than lason does. Then Irv disappears, and 
lason . . . well, Jason has neglected more 
than his wife. 

It's not just that Finney, in his best 
work since the underrated Shoot the 
Moon, is so persuasive as a man who has 
misplaced his principles in the office and 
at home. Nor that Mahoney, who starred 
recently with Mason in a wholly unneces- 
sary TNT remake of Dinner at Eight, is so 
agreeable as Irv. Nor that Peter Werner 
directs with so much bounce, Brian Rehak 

LOOKING-GLASS WAR: Albert Finney in The Image. 

writes so close to the moral bone, and Ma- 
son can play Mason so much better than 
anyone else. It's also that The Image gets 
everything right about the business it criti- 
cizes — the ambitions, but the camarade- 
rie, too; how producers really function; 
how romance ruins friendship; when a 
story needs more work; what makes for 
terrific TV even if, as a last resort, they 
have to tell the truth. 

you can't watch Sensibility and Sense 

(American Playhouse, Wednesday, Janu- 
ary 24; 9 to 11:30 p.m.; Channel 13) 
without thinking about Lillian Hellman, 
Mary McCarthy, and Diana Trilling. Rich- 
ard Nelson, a young American who seems 
to have done most of his work in England, 
where talky plays on left politics are more 
appreciated, hasn't brought the famous, 
undignified Hellman/McCarthy/Trilling 
feud directly onstage, but he invokes their 
noisy ghosts. They resonate. It's uncanny. 

Elaine Stritch, as Marianne, even looks 
a little like Trilling and McCarthy in their 
later, school marm phase. Jean Simmons, 
as Elinor, captures something of Hell- 
man's what-becomes-a-legend-most radi- 
cal mink. Tom Aldredge, as poor Eddie, 
the ex-radical who married both of them, 

so much resembles a composite of Pete 
Seeger and E. L. Doctorow that I expect- 
ed him to either strike up a twelve-string 
guitar or explain the Rosenbergs. And 
those loons on the lake in the Adiron- 
dacks are also, of course, Doctorow's. 

Imagine I'm Not Rappaport with Simon 
Gray's wit and Doris Lessing's brains. 

We first meet Marianne, a retired col- 
lege president, and Eddie, who writes es- 
says on pornography for the New York 
Review of Books, in the Adirondacks in 
1987. They are waiting for Elinor, an edi- 
tor at a Manhattan publishing house, to 
arrive by motorboat and explain her mem- 
oir. In this memoir, Elinor savages her 
oldest friend, Marianne, as typical of a 
whole class of I m all right lack Upper 
West Side intellectuals who betrayed their 
youthful idealism in the dreary Cold War 
years. Eddie, an ex-husband as well as an 
ex-radical, has been deleted, even from 
Elinor's index. From the beginning of 
their menage a trois, Eddie has always 
been the odd man out. Sensibility and 
Sense is as much consumed by female 
friendship as it is by left history. 

Almost immediately, we flash back 50 
years to their first visit to the Adiron- 
dacks, fresh from college politics in the

Partisan Review. In their earlier incarna- 
tions, Marianne is played by Lili Taylor 
(Say Anything, Mystic Pizza), Elinor by 
Trini Alvarado (Mrs. Soffel), and Eddie by 
Eric Stoltz (Mask). We'll go back and 
forth the rest of the play, until all six of 
them, the pure of heart and their revised 
editions, are in the same room, or on the 
same porch, at the same time, a crowd of 
regrets. We'll also meet, in the present, 
Eddie's nephew Peter (leffrey DeMunn), a 
real-estate lawyer who may be suing Eli- 
nor for Marianne; and, in the past, as if to 
prove there was radical chic before there 
was Tom Wolfe, the stunning Therese

girl who actually went to Spain — to fight 
the Fascists and think about sex. 

These people talk about joseph Stalin 
and the Sierra Club, Amnesty International 
and Saran Wrap, South Africa and skinny- 
dipping. What they're really talking about is 
friendship in history. If the personal is po- 
litical, how much so, at what cost, and is 
there any forgiveness? I felt like a spy, 
switching sides so often in my sympathies. 
To their young friendship. Taylor and Al- 
varado bring a passionate intensity. As 
Marianne, Stritch is magnificent. 

In brief: for super bowl week, cbs is 
pulling out all the stops. Right after the 
49er victory, you'll see Grand Slam (Sun- 
day, lanuary 28; roughly 8:30 to 10 p.m.. 
depending on the game), with |ohn 
Schneider and Paul Rodriguez in the two- 
hour pilot of a series to start the following 
Wednesday, about a pair of San Diego 
bounty hunters. There's a funny competi- 
tive chili-pepper-eating scene, but this is 
otherwise low-rent Miami Vice. . . . Much 
better is City (starting Monday, january 
29; 8:30 to 9 p.m.; CBS), a new sitcom 
with Valerie Harper as a city manager 
who must deal with a college-dropout 
daughter, a deputy mayor on the take, a 
new city-theme-song contest, Cubans and 
the CIA and "cadavers body-surfing down

Lionel Chetwynd seems to be thinking 
about those Harvard sociobiologists. . • • 
Even more predictable is Face to Face

of pipe-smoking old Kenya hand Robert

dance companies of Russia, France, and 
Denmark, American Ballet Theatre, cele- 
brating its fiftieth birthday this season, is 
a mere adolescent. But it has achieved 
wonders in that relatively short time, es- 
pecially when you consider two aspects of 
its history: Classical dancing as an idiom 
had to be cultivated in resistant soil in 
these United States (where it is still sus- 
pect to a degree), while government subsi- 
dy has been partial at best 
(the venerable European 
troupes, remember, began 
as the projects of kings). 

In its half-century of 
struggle and intermittent 
glory, ABT produced bal- 
lets authentically Ameri- 
can in subject or tone by 
choreographers such as 
Agnes de Mille, the young 
lerome Robbins, and the 
young Eliot Feld, and a 
generation later by the 
likes of Twyla Tharp and 
Mark Morris. It served as 
a custodian for the Fokine 
repertoire and sheltered 
and supported the British- 
born Antony Tudor— the 
closest it ever came to 
possessing a resident gen- 
ius. In more recent years, 
it strove to mount respect- 
able versions of the eve- 
ning-length nineteenth-century classics 
and wisely mined the modern and post- 
modern veins for acquisitions and cre- 
ations. For most of its life, the troupe was 
blessed with accomplished soloists, both 
homegrown and imported, whose distinct 
personalities gave it luster. 

The company has reason to congratu- 
late itself, as it emphatically did with its 
lanuary 14 gala at the Metropolitan Opera 
House — an occasion that recalled the star- 
riest moments of its past and simulta- 
neously helped reduce its always terrifying 
deficit. Indeed, when this "once in a life- 
time" occasion sold out well before the 
performance, the company promptly de- 
cided to repeat it in the course of its regu- 
lar spring run in New York. This is not, 
I'm afraid, a program I can recommend. 

Staged by ABT alumnus Michael 
Smuin, whose choreography has been 

most notable for its flash, the evening 
reached a nadir of glut and vulgarity with 
a succession of sight bites from "the clas- 
sics," in which princesses, princes, and 
peasants of geographically disparate 
earthly realms, otherworldly beings of 
various persuasions, and your errant swan 
or bronze statue succeeded one another 
onstage without so much as a breath be- 
tween them. Times Past were represented 
largely by a patchwork of film and video

clips linked by unctuous voice-over narra- 
tion. The familiar problems presented 
themselves here: the deadly pall of con- 
ventional documentary technique and the 
fact that the "history" recorded via cam- 
era is arbitrarily selective and not all that 
much akin to the experience of live danc- 
ing. This case was aggravated by the fact 
that the old footage, blown up to the 
Met's stage size, was severely blurred. 

A few of the individual live turns were 
commendable for one reason or another: 
Eliot Feld's comments, for their intelli- 
gence and feeling; Alicia Alonso's per- 
formance in the pas de deux from Swan 
Lake. Act II, for the insistence of the bal- 
lerina, decades past her prime, on a scru- 
pulously taut knee; Carla Fracci's appear- 
ance in the evocative lardin aux Lilas, for 
its perfume; Amanda McKerrow's danc- 
ing, for its customary purity and nascent 

emotional texture; Alessandra Ferri's por- 
trayal of luliet, for its quivering abandon; 
lohn Gardner's rendition of several roles, 
for lyricism and tenderness; and a brief 
new brass quintet by Leonard Bernstein, 
its sections named "Antony," "Agnes," 
"Misha," "Mr. B.," "Jerry." for the wit 
with which it noted those personalities. 

Lots of alumni were present — watch- 
ing, dancing (Fernando Bujones), or 
speaking (Oliver Smith, de Mille, Igor 
Youskevitch, Natalia Ma- 
karova, Gelsey Kirkland). 
The dominant theme of 
the evening seemed to be 
homage to Tudor as the 
company's "artistic con- 
science" — an honorific in- 
vented, as far as I can re- 
call, at a point long after 
the company had forgot- 
ten how to dance most of 
Tudor's work meaningful- 
ly — and to Lucia Chase. 
ABT's director for 35 
years, for "always being 
there." Her successor, 
Mikhail Baryshnikov, who 
decidedly was not always 
there — and, indeed, was 
absent from the gala— was 
politely given his due, but 
with understandable un- 
derlying tension. 

The company's fiftieth 
anniversary finds it in a 
state of crisis. Baryshnikov, who has been 
its artistic director for the past decade, left 
abruptly at the beginning of the season. 
Other pursuits had deflected his inter- 
est — as his dancing powers waned, he be- 
gan to look to theater and film as perform- 
ing arenas — and he apparently felt himself 
underappreciated as a choreographer, 
put-upon as a fund-raiser. He had given a 
gentlemanly one-year notice until political 
developments within the administration 
led to an immediate rupture. 

The company is being run in the interim 
by its new executive director, Jane Her- 
mann, formerly director of presentations 
at the Metropolitan Opera. At the mo- 
ment, the feisty and authoritative Her- 
mann is clearly wielding the power of ar- 
tistic as well administrative decision; 
whether she will accede to the top title de- 
pends on the board of directors' willing-

ness to appoint someone whose profes- 
sional qualifications are organizational 
rather than artistic, and, alternatively, on 
its ability to find an artist unquestionably 
qualified for the post. No figure has yet 
been proposed who combines outstanding 
creative gifts with astute, charismatic 
leadership, or who simply has the scope 
and intensity of vision to make him or her 
an inevitable choice. 

Admittedly, Baryshnikov has not been 
an ideal director, but one cannot deny the 
improvements he has made in the compa- 
ny, particularly in the technical level of its 
ensemble and in the repertory. The dance 
world as a whole is undergoing difficult 
limes, with the leadership of major com- 
panies, both classical and modern, unsta- 
ble. A study of ABT's history, though, 
shows that it is no stranger to trouble, 
which sometimes even seems to fuel the 
incandescent moments it erratically, but 
unforgettably, achieves onstage. 


ing nearly nonstop, opened the year with a 
series called Man Made. The umbrella title 
covered five programs, each comprising 
the work of two or more male choreogra- 
phers. The sequel to last year's "Women's 
Work," it was patently a selling ploy rath- 
er than a rectification of sexual injustice in 
the world of modern dance. 

True, early on, the field was dominated 
by women: Isadora Duncan, Mary Wig- 
man, Martha Graham, Doris Humphrey. 
"After all," as a female disciple of Gra- 
ham's once pointed out, "what man 
would put up with the conditions under 
which we worked?" (No money, back- 
breaking labor, and generous helpings of 
scorn from a public unconvinced by the 
pioneers' revolutionary concepts.) Since 
then, conditions have improved some, 
and male choreographers — think Merce 
Cunningham, Paul Taylor, Mark Morris — 
have achieved just recognition. 

1 was able to see six choreographers in 
the Joyce series before deadline time, and 
emerged generally disheartened. Genius 
like that of the artists mentioned above is 
rare, and the disparity between the works 
of genius and the product of some talent 
and efficient craft, even coupled with sin- 
cerity and intellect, is very, very large. The 
selection committee for the "ManMade" 
contributors was not after "discoveries"; 
1 suspect that at the moment there are few 
to be made. All of the choreographers pre- 
sented are names faithful dance watchers 
know, practitioners with imposing lists of 
credits. What these dance-makers lack is 
the spark of originality, the ability to use 
the traditional materials of dance or to re- 
invent them — in order to create structures 
and situations, images and atmospheres, 

that affect us as new, strange, and in- 

Randy Warshaw operates in a mode de- 
rived from Trisha Brown, tediously 
smoothed out to rangy lyricism and lack- 
ing, alas, Brown's witty idiosyncrasy. Bill 
Young is another sub-Brown choreogra- 
pher, with a softer, more lopey language. 
You remember Doug Varone for his stage 
pictures, so studiously well composed that 
you yearn for something accidental, awk- 
ward — striking — to occur. Stephen Pe- 
tronio shares the propensity of these three 
for going on at unconscionable length 
about nothing apparent. His best entry 
was a portion — succinct and cannily com- 
posed — of Surrender 11, a brief, violent 
male duet that seems to describe sex in 
our times. 

Mark Dendy is one of those wiseacre 
fellows with his eye on the main chance. 
At least he feels some obligation to rivet 
the audience's attention, which he does 
exuberantly in Beat, a fast-paced sally 
about body training. Ralph Lemon's foy, a 
commentary, by turns ironic and touch- 
ing, on the nature of theater, is more per- 
formance art than dance, but it thankfully 
offers a view of a rakish imagination at 
play. It, too, is self-indulgently extended, 
one more worthy candidate for the admo- 
nition attributed to Humphrey: "Cut it in 
half and fix the rest."

Books/Rhoda Koenig 



. .Thomas Pynchon's Vine land is a powerful, pitying vision of 
the reality of America juxtaposed against its promise. . ." 

by Thomas Pynchon. 
Brown; 585 pages: $19.95. 


d. The latest off the Thomas Pynchon 
assembly line, Vineland is about corrup- 
tion in politics, the corruption of na- 
ture, rock music, pop music, fast 
food, violence, drugs, cars, sex, sex 
with cars, death, and God. It is writ- 
ten in the American language. The 
last word is "home." How American 
can you get? 

Vineland is set, in part, in a town of 
the same name in California, that sun- 
drenched compost heap of the Ameri- 
can Dream, but its larger setting is ev- 
erything meant by the country whose 
northern tip the Vikings knew as Vin- 
land the Good, a place of great natu- 
ral richness populated by natives they 
called "wretches," who drove them 
away. A millennium later, wretches 
still slink along the roads and through 
the forests, bending nature and the 
innocent to their purposes, normaliz- 
ing dread. Developers pave the land 
with cheap condominiums. The Than- 
atoids, people who are dead but won't 
lie down (who among us does not 
know a Thanatoid?), not only multi- 
ply but hold dances and conventions 
where the band plays such gloriously 
depressed favorites as "1 Gotta Right 
to Sing the Blues" and "Don't Get 
Around Much Anymore." (How did 
Pynchon ever miss "Moanin' Low"?) 
A union organizer is crushed from 
waist down by a sawn-through tree 
pushed over by a company man. 

Nature responds with terror of its own 
in both appearance and act. The sky is 
"the underside of a beast, countless gray- 
black udder shapes crawling in front of a 
squall line, behind it something distantly 
roaring." A mysterious saurian emerges 
from the sea to squash a research labora- 
tory with one stamp of its humongous 
foot. Some Vinelandians try to placate 
nature, but in ways that are designer- 
ineffectual and of which nature probably 
would not approve: A couple forgo bread, 
because it involves the killing of yeast. 

Zoyd Wheeler, a gypsy roofer and pick- 
up musician, sets off Pynchon's plot, one 
that is as complicated and improbable as 
life (well, at least, life in California). Vine- 

Little, land begins in 1984 and shuttles back- 
ward and forward between that Orwell- 

ian, Reaganite year and the sixties. At the 

fag end of that desperate decade, Zoyd's 
wife, Frenesi, gave birth to their daughter, 
Prairie, and took off with Brock Vond, a 


DOUBTING THOMAS: The young Pynchon. 

dark genius of political control. (Though 
Frenesi means "Please love me," the re- 
quest seems to best apply, sadly, to her 
daughter, who reproaches Zoyd for never 
remarrying and for dating girls her own 
age, then decides, "You must have always 
loved my mom, so much that if it couldt'n 
be her, it wouldt'n be anybody.") 

Back in the sixties, Brock realized that 
the youth revolutions were "not threats to 
order but unacknowledged desires for 
it . . . the deep — if he'd allowed himself to 
feel it, the sometimes touching — need 
only to stay children forever, safe inside 
some extended national Family." He sets 
up a reeducation camp to turn demonstra- 
tors into FBI informers, the bait being that 
they can keep going back to school forev- 
er, and becomes obsessed with his prison- 
er, Frenesi. 

Pynchon's plot comprises much be- 
sides — endless variations on betrayal, dis- 
location, disguise, revenge. (While char- 
acters and situations are endlessly 
satirical, the story itself is an intoxicated 
satire of thrillers and conspiracies.) Zoyd. 
who must appear continually de- 
ranged in order to claim his federal 
mental-disability check, walks into a 
loggers' bar carrying a chain saw and 
wearing a dress. One barhound takes 
a fancy to him and asks if he is an un- 
dercover agent. " 'Nut case,' confided 
Zoyd. 'Oh. Well . . . that sounds like 
interesting work too.' " Then, quick 
as forked lightning, Zoyd is asked to 
become an agent by his persecutor 
Hector Zuniga, a Fed, who is then 
himself revealed to be just a few steps 
ahead of the men in white coats. Re- 
fracted identities occur on a more 
crudely comic level when Billy Barf 
and the Vomitones, badly in need of a 
gig, offer themselves as a replacement 
band at a Mafia wedding, under the 
name of Gino Baglione and the Pai- 
sans. When Billy-Gino's wig slides off 
to reveal a turquoise crop, "the bride, 
to protect her wedding from such 
possible unlucky omens as blood on 
the wedding cake," slips out and re- 
turns with the Italian Wedding Fake 
Book and another musician immobi- 
lizes a resentful mob henchman with 
such Newspeak as "As a connoisseur 
and from the story your face seems to 
— tell a recipient of some of Life's hard 
knocks yourself, you can see the present 
crisis may not be worth emotional invest- 
ment on the scale you contemplate." 

Language is for Pynchon not only a stun 
gun but an assault vehicle. The new novel 
has its share of sinister acronyms — uhuru 
here is not Swahili for "freedom" but 
"Ultra High-speed Urban Reconnaissance 
Unit" — and dazzlingly silly puns. (The 
local lawn-care service. The Marquis de 
Sod, advertises with a jingle that begins, 
to the tune of the "Marseillaise," "A lawn 
savant, who'll lop a tree-ee-uh.") The 
most caressing phrases and actions shiver 
with menace. Frenesi's father sings 
"Down Among the Sheltering Palms" to 
delight his little daughter, but the Vibrat-

was Miss Animosity") applies to her 
victim in the so-called act of love. 

There are times when Pynchon's multi- 
ple shifts of perspective become exhaust- 
ing rather than enlightening, times when, 
drawing back from allusiveness, he be- 
comes overexplicit. But these are minor 
glitches in a powerful, pitying vision of 
the reality of America juxtaposed against 
its promise. In this endlessly inventive 
novel, Pynchon's unfortunates scrabble 
away as best they can, with the sketchiest 
instructions from the great fake book of 
life. Erased from existence by the press of 
a computer button, Frenesi hums Pyn- 
chon's bleak gospel hymn: "What we cry, 
what we contend for, in our world of toil 
and blood, it all lies beneath the notice of 
the hacker we call God."

tune to be here in the same week as 
Thomas Pynchon, but Palace Walk, writ- 
ten in 1956 and now published for the 
first time in English, inspires gloomy 
thoughts on the Nobel Committee's atten- 
tion to politics and productivity. The first 
volume of Mahfouz's Cairo Trilogy, Pal- 
ace Walk chronicles the life of a middle- 
class family under the British protectorate 
of World War I with more concern for so- 
cial realism than for depth of character or 
beautiful prose. 

Though the opening chapters have the 
tedious quality of one of those stories 
about how children in foreign lands are 
the same as us in some ways and different 
from us in others, the novel opens out into 
a moderately entertaining tale of conflict 
within the family and with the British. Its 
greatest interest lies in the megalomania- 
cal but apparently conventional behavior 
of the father: Ahmad Abd al-|awad ban- 
ishes his wife of 25 years from the house 
because she has dared to visit a mosque 
without his permission, and rejects an of- 
fer of marriage from a man he fears may 
have actually looked at his daughter. "No 
daughter of mine will marry a man until I 
am satisfied that his primary motive for 
marrying her is a sincere desire to be relat- 
ed to me. . . me . . . me. . . me." 

The writing is heavily overexplanatory 
and frequently archaic and trite: "Her 
face was as beautiful as the moon"; "Her 
face was stained red with shame in a phys- 
ical manifestation of remorse that con- 
science releases inside us when injured by 
one of our offenses." Mahfouz is not 
helped by the translators. Dr. William ML 
Hutchins and Olive E. Kenny, who do not 
know that "host" is not a verb, that 
"disinterest" does not mean "lack of 
interest," and that "The devil made me 
do it" will make American readers think 
not of the prince of darkness but of Flip 
Wilson. ■■

SOMETHING ROTTEN IN THE STATE OF SCOTLAND: Raul lultu on the Public heath. 

" . . .Raul Julia makes anguish look like a bite into a lemon someone 
has painted orange; Lady Macbeth is a Westchester housewife. . ." 


Conklin has designed a wooden bullring 
with a modified corral gate and encircling 
plank wall low enough for one or another 
witch to peer over. The backdrop is a 
wooden facade with a wide clerestory 
window having no other purpose than to 
emit periodic gusts of smoke; but where, 
oh where, is the fire? The unit set has the 
unique distinction of being uniformly dys- 
functional for outdoor and indoor scenes. 

No less uproarious are Jeanne Button's 
costumes. They tend to use that heavy, 
quilted fabric in which movers wrap pi- 
anos for protection; the stuff comes com- 
plete with colored leather straps and 
buckles, here utilized to hold, say, Mac- 
beth's vestigial kilt neatly and decorously 
together. Other costumes display heroic 
attempts to appear fetchingly rough- 
hewn, making a lot of characters look like 
rumpus-room furniture. But the costumes 
have further jokes up their sleeves. Thus 
Malcolm flees Scotland in an oversize ma- 
roon T-shirt; in England, several acts and 
years later, he is still wearing the same 
garment. (Talk about Scottish parsimo- 
ny!) The shoes here indeed look vaguely 
medieval, but above the ankles several 
centuries commingle in a dizzying orgy. 
And Brian Gale's flat lighting mercilessly 
leaves nothing to the imagination. 

Peter Nels's fights are marvelously pa- 
cific and guaranteed not to hurt a fly. 
They are a sort of underwater ballet by a 
neophyte choreographer, its every move- 
ment swathed in stately predictability, 
with strictly consensual skewerings. As 
for Richard lordan's staging, it allows a 
large and colorful variety of speech, sug- 
gesting that medieval Scotland was at 
least as multicultural as Grand Central 
Terminal. No wonder Lennox (II, iii, 58) 
refers to "accents terrible." More amaz- 
ing yet is that so many of these thanes 
look like beardless youths in some strange 
suburban rite of passage. Not least so Wil- 
liam Converse-Roberts, whose Macduff is 
a kind of Bobby Kennedy as enacted in a 
prep-school pageant, and whose perform- 
ance creeps at a Choate or Peddie pace. 

The witches' talents are many, even if 
acting does not seem to be among them. 
They are musician-dancers cavorting to 
the sound of their own flutes, triangles, 
tambourines. (Daniel Schreier's music is 
part magnificent but inapposite Mahler, 

part horrendous and entirely appropriate 
Schreier.) They are also canteen women, 
dragging about a Mother Courage-style 
wagon. They are gourmet cooks, too, who 
spurn the customary witches' caldron for 
a chic little cookery-bazaar copper pot. Fi- 
nally, they are expert puppeteers, putting 
on quite a show foretelling Macbeth's fu- 
ture, so we know at last that by "our mas- 
ters" they mean the likes of Bil Baird. 

These weird sisters are also quick- 
change artists, doubling as murderers and 
messengers, though who knows whether 
from metaphysical or cost-cutting mo- 
tives. The casting is certainly economical, 
what with someone like Mark Hammer, 
hard enough to take in one role, let loose 
on two (Duncan, Doctor). Daniel von 
Bargen is a bargain-basement Ross, Ste- 
phen Rowe's Angus is as puny of perform- 
ance as of stature, Thomas Gibson acts up 
a doldrum as Malcolm, and Harry S. Mur- 
phy, with deadly help from the director, 
gives us a porter unfunny down to his 
dropped pants, over which he delivers his 
body trippingly. However, Harriet Harris 
is a fully persuasive Lady Macduff; Larry 
Bryggman, despite his unheroic looks, a 
creditable Banquo; and joseph Costa, as 
the Old Man and Old Siward, a true scion 
of yesteryear's good old troupers. 

Raul |ulia makes a valiant stab at Mac- 
beth, though, alas, with an imaginary dag- 

ger. When he inquires, "But wherefore 
could not I pronounce 'Amen?' " the an- 
swer is: For the same reason you cannot 
pronounce anything else, lulia's Hispanic- 
accented Macbeth suggests a timely but 
ill-advised takeoff on General Noriega. 
We get such thought-provoking readings 
as "Scar fop [scarf up] the tender eye of 
pitiful day" and "a tale told by a needy 
yacht." Moreover, Julia has a comic face 
and a lightweight, comedic persona. He 
makes anguish look like a bite into a lem- 
on someone has painted orange. Melinda 
Mullins does Lady Macbeth as a neurotic 
Westchester housewife, which is funny 
enough, except when she does it as a 
Westchester housewife trying to do Lady 
Macbeth, which is a scream. 

Richard lordan's direction turns even 
the appearance of Banquo's ghost into 
farce. With his entire head smeared with 
red, Banquo looks like someone who, go- 
ing Clarence's malmsey one better, has 
drowned in a cask of grenadine. Later. 
Lady Macbeth, loath to die offstage as 
written, dashes on in her nightie to em- 
brace her spouse, who, for reasons until 
then inscrutable, wears a knife on his 
back; this she snatches from its sheath to 
commit hara-kiri. As she lies there stiff as 
a board, Seyton explains to his evidently 
somewhat thick master, "The Queen, my 
Lord, is dead." It is to die laughing. ^ m

The Steaks Aren't High 


Daily News Restaurant Critic 

MY, HOW THE mighty 
have fallen. My. how the 
modest have made the 
most of it. 
Once One Fifth was a fancy 
downtown watering hole; big on decor 
. . . After a number of years in business, 
several different chefs, and several menu 
renovations, it still couldn't draw the big 
bucks crowd it needed to survive. 

In steps Arnie Rosen. New York's 
P.T. Barnum of budget beef bams. Over 
a year ago. he took over from the original 
owners. . . . Rosen has wisely kept One 
Fifth's marvelous looking dining room 
. . . just as it was. But instead of frou- 
frou food, he has installed a moderately 
priced steak-house menu. 

What a relief! One Fifth's kitchen is 
doing all the important, basic things right 
- good meat, good salad, good potatoes 
and good simple desserts . . . you don't 
have to save up for months to eat here. 

The top price is S16.S0. for a 1 6- ounce 
boneless sirloin. 12-ounce Met mignon. 
14-ounce veal chop or two 5-ounce lamb 
chops, all including a beautifully dressed 
Caesar salad or sliced tomatoes & onions, 
plus an oversized baked Idaho potato or 
fresh vegetable. A hefty slab of prime rib 

is $16.50 (critic's choice). . . . There's 
free parking for two hours across the 

Rosen has always been big on the 
bargain . . . and is a restaurateur who 
says things like "places that m«tke it in 
the long run have to give the people what 
they want. . . . Every place has its thing. 
I think watching the room is really impor- 

I do too. And Rosen and his managers 
do patrol the room - greeting, seating, 
troubleshooting. The young servers are 
efficient, polite and accommodating. 
Even the bus boys are on the ball 
. . . The room has a lively restaurant 
hum, but it's not truly noisy. The crowd 
is handsome, of all ages; a wide spectrum 
of New Yorkers looking for a good, no- 
frills dinner at relatively reasonable 
cost . . .

ALWAYS— (2 hrs. 2 mm; 1989) Shimmering images of 
daredevil fircfighdng pilots taking their planes right 
through flames and smoke give way to Steven Spiel- 
berg's pop mystical kitsch. Richard Drcyfuss is the ace 
pilot who takes one too many risks and dies glorious- 
ly: Holly Hunter his loyal girl, also an ace; John 
Goodman his roly-poly sidekick; and newcomer Brad 
Johnson the handsome young flyer who pursues Hol- 
ly after Drcyfuss dies. Returning as an unseen pres- 
ence, Drcyfuss has to give up his posthumous jealou- 
sy and help Holly find happiness with the new man. 
We seem to have a movie here about dead people 
learning not to be selfish. It's a character flaw that not 
all of us may need to face. Always looks great, but it is 
overwrought, hyped, and empty. Based on Victor 
Fleming's 1943 movie A Guy Named Joe (1/8/90) PG-

MM TO THE FUTURE PART II— (1 hr. 55 mm.; 1989) In 
the original, Michael J Fox's struggle to bring his par- 
ents together so they could mate and produce him had 
i wrenching force. And with that wild man Crispin 
Glover giving a painfully expressive performance as 
the wimpy father, the comedy veered recklessly into 
pathos and back. But the sequel is just noise and fren- 
zied activity. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, as the mad 
doctor, fly forward and then backward into time, 
running into other versions of themselves from the 
first movie's tnp back in time. The wild-eyed Lloyd, 
shouting gibberish, is desperately unfunny, and Fox is 
little more than a shuttlecock with mussed feathers 
With Lea Thompson and Thomas F Wilson as the 
heavy. Screenplay by Bob Gale. Story by Gale and 
Robert Zcmcckis. Directed by Zcmcckis (12/1 1/89)

HAZE— (2 hrs ; 1989) PI aying Earl K. Long, the com- 
bustible Louisiana governor of the fifties. Paul New- 
man walks snffly with his shoulders turned out and 
his arms hanging loose. The performance is extreme- 
ly funny and deeply cccentnc. This clowning old pol 
is not quite cynical. Earl is the man who delivers; he's 
even trying hard to deliver to his black constituents. 
More than 60. he falls for a fleshy young stnppcr 
' Blaze Starr (Loliu Davidovich) and promptly 

ruins himself. It's a great subject, but apart from 
Newman, Blaze isn't very good. Davidovich, though 
abundant, is not a sensual performer, and Newman 
has to carry their scenes by himself Some of the polit- 
ical atmosphere is entertaining in a caricatured way/ — 
all the other politicians are racists or low hacks. Writ- 
er-director Ron Shclton sentimentalizes Earl as a mar- 
tyr to racism and sexual hypocrisy. (1/15/90) R. 21,

BL000M0UMDS Of BROADWAY— ! hr. 30 nun.; 1989) 
The jazz age is ushered out on Broadway with boot- 
leggers, mobsters, and femmes fatalcs. With Madon- 
na, Julie Hagerty. and Matt Dillon. Screenplay by 
Howard Brookner and Colman DcKay. Dir. 
Brookncr. PC. 6 

+ BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY — (1 hr. 50 nun.; 1989) 
Tom Cruise gives the performance of his life in Oliver 
Stone's pulverizing movie about Ron Kovic, a young 
Marine from Long Island who was wounded in Viet- 
nam, paralyzed from the chest down, and lost his faith 
not only in the war but in God, Mother, and Coun- 
try Trying to stay inside Kovic's experiences. Stone 
has made one of the most powerful — and also one of 
the most relentless — movies we ve ever seen in this 
country. Much of the time the camera is jammed up 
into people's faces, and the audience may feel as if it is 
in the grip of a brilliant monomaniac. The movie 
doesn't breathe. Still, there arc sequences you will 
never forget, and Cruise, letting his voice go shrill 
with rage, is always moving, and sometimes heart- 
breaking. With WiUem Dafoc and Caroline Kava.

CAMILLE CLAUDCL — (2 hrs. 49 min; 1989) In French. 
Eng. subtitles A romantic drama about the life of Ro- 
din's mistress, the French sculptress Camillc Claudd. 
With Isabellc Adjani. Screenplay by Bruno Nuytten 
and Marilyn Goldin. Dir. Nuytten. 50 

★ CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS— ( 1 hr. 44 nun.; 1989) 
Woody Allen's most ambitious and complexly orga- 
nized work yet. The principal character, Judah Rosen- 
thal (Martin Landau), a rich, distinguished doctor, is 
getting trouble from his mistress (Anjclica Huston), 
who can't wait anymore for Judah to leave his wife 
(Claire Bloom) and is threatening to expose his sins. 
Enraged by her demands, Judah begins to listen to his 
thuggish brother (Jerry Orbach), who proposes that 
IX'lorcs be gotten nd of. In a richly developed sub- 
plot. Cliff (Woody Allen), a high-minded but bitterly 
envious documentary filmmaker, tries to do in the 
subject of his latest film — his egotistical brother-in- 
law Lester (Alan Alda). who creates Emmy-wuirung 
sitcoms — and also snatch from under Lester's nose the 
producer of the film, Halley (Mia Farrow). What 
holds the two disparate stories together is not so much 
the occasionally overlapping characters as Woody Al- 
len's fascination with the drama of winners and losers 
in a world without safety nets. The movie asks such 
things as. Is there any real punishment for crime? Is 
God, or anyone else, keeping score? The philosophi- 
cal debate on crime and its consequences is woven 
into the plot — in fart, it is the plot. The resolution of 
these questions is the movie's main line of suspense.

DOWNTOWN— (1 hr. 37 min.; 1990) A tough, streetwise 
Philadelphia cop is saddled with a naive, go-by-thc-

★ DRIVING MISS DAISY — I hr. 45 min ; 1989) In Bruce 
Bercsford's mild but pleasing adaptation of Alfred 
Uhry's play, the great Jessica Tandy plays a wealthy 
old Georgia widow of German-Jewish descent, and 
Morgan Freeman her black chauffeur of many years. 
The movie, passing in time from the fifties through 
the civil-rights period, lovingly measures the precise 
shadings of irritation, affection, and dependence that 
flow back and forth between the two characters as 
they shift, ever so slowly, from mistress and servant 
to friends (12/18/89) PG 7. 19. 46, 63. 85. 210, 219,

* DRUGSTORE COWBOY — (1 hr. 40 min.; 1989) Matt 
Dillon and Kelly Lynch as a stoned young couple — a 
Bonnie and Clyde for the pin-headed age. They spend 
their days plotting the ripoffs and getaways that make 
up a druggie's weirdly purposeful existence. Set in 

l> ...I ... 1 . .. . 1. _ - • ft ,* i i i . L 

r ortunu in tne seventies [ rscrorc cracx cnangca tne 
drug scene), and based on an unpublished novel by 
James Foglc, a lifetime addict and thief currently serv- 
ing a 22-year term in Walla Walla, Drugstore Cowboy 
doesn't offer the usual warnings and cliches. Much of 
the movie plays at the edge of absurdist comedy. The 
writer-director C ius Van Sant Jr. , working on Foglc s 
material with screenwriter Daniel Yost, tries to cap- 
ture the pill-head's life from the inside. Van Sant sees 
the characters as gallant losers — stupid, perhaps, but 
not entirely without courage. (10/9/89) R. 4. 38 

★ ENEMIES, A LOVE STORY — (1 hr. 58 min.; 1989) In 
Paul Mazursky's superb adaptation (with Roger L. Si- 
mon) of Isaac Bashcvis Singer's 1973 novel, survivors 
of the Nazi Holocaust, washed up on the shores of 
New York in the late forties, look at the teeming, 
prosperous society around them with a mixture of 
fearfulncss and hope. The war is over and they can 
breathe — but they arc afraid to breathe too deeply. 
Sex is the one tiling they trust. Mazursky catches the 
healing spirit of Singer's lustfulness, convincingly pre- 
senting sex as the life force at work. Having been 
saved from the Nazis by his Polish servant. Herman 
Broder (Ron Silver) lives with the adoring woman on 
Coney Island. A down-at-t he-heels literary man, 
Herman rushes off to the Bronx to sec his passionate 
mistress (Lena Olin). Then his haughty first wife (An- 
jclica Huston), whom he has long thought dead, 
shows up on the Lower East Side. The period re-cre- 
ation that Mazursky's team has put together is glow- 
ingly perfect. Instead of going for low farce, Ma- 
zursky plays the man- with-three- women situation 
with deepest feeling. Enemies is a beautiful, full-bod- 
ied success. (12/18/89) R. 4. 19. 43, 48, 110. 206, 219,

EVERYBODY WINS— (1 hr. 45 min. ; 1990) A detective and

★ THE FABULOUS BAKER BOYS— (1 hr. 54 min.; 1989) 
For fifteen years, Frank Baker (Beau Bridges) and his 
brother. Jack (Jeff Bridges), have been working to- 
gether as a two-piano team, doing the same moldy 
patter night after night in mossy Seattle hotel lounges 
for people who talk through their act. Frank is the 
musician as suburbanite; he's long stopped caring, or 
noticing, that the art is musically pathetic. Grouchy 
nid silent, brother Jick seems to be punishing himself" 





with isolation and loneliness. The musical talent, the 
idealism ami courage are buried deep within him. The 
boys arc roused from their sleep by Susie Diamond 
(Michelle Pfciffcr). a singer who joins the act. The ro- 
mantic suspense is terrific. Will Jack and Susie, hip- 
sters alike in talent and temperament, make it togeth- 
er? Pfciffcr gives a taut, thrilling performance; she 
even sings well. In the end, The fabulous Baker Boys is 
both hard-nosed and lyrical, both bluesy and exhila- 
rating. In fact, it's a bloody miracle. Steve Klovcs, the 
29-year-old writer-director, has made a portrait of 
show-business sccdincss charged with romantic long-

★ FAMILY BUSINESS— (I hr 55 mm.; 1989) Sean Con- 
nery, Dustin Hoffman, and Matthew Broderick arc 
not remotely possible as the three male generations of 
a single family, but they are so enjoyable in Sidney 
Lumet's family thriller that the implausibility mat- 
tered little. The story, based on a Vincent Patrick 
novel, rs about the irresistible excitement of criminal- 
ity and the jealousies and tensions between genera- 
tions As the roistering old reprobate, Conncry has 
the broadest lines and delivers them superbly; Hoff- 
man is complexly moving in the pivotal role of a man 
with larcenous instincts who has forced himself to go 
straight; and Broderick is steady and strong as his 
genteelly brought-up son. Sec this movie. It's better 
than reviewers have said. Both Patrick's script and 
Lumet's direction are pungent and deeply rooted in 
time and place — in New York Irishness and Jcwish- 
ness. And the allure of crime— the way it strikes some 
people as the ultimate source of happiness — has never 
been made clearer (1/8/90) R. 51. 602, 610, 812, 906, 

A FLAME IN MY HEART— hr. 50 nun.; 1990) In French.

GLORY — (2 firs. 2 min.; 1989) In this sturdily mediocre. 

regiment raised in the North during the Civil War. 
the roles are a series of stock characters borrowed 
from World War II platoon movies. Matthew Bro- 
derick is the scion of an aristocratic Massachusetts 
family who winds up in command of the unit. Denzcl 
Washington is a cynical escaped slave who has to be 
taken down a peg, Morgan Freeman a wise old man 
who holds everything together, Andre Braughcr an 
effcte black intellectual who needs to find his man- 
hood, and so on. Edward Zwick, the TV whiz re- 
sponsible for ihirtysomething, doesn't rise to the imagi- 
native level required by his noble subject. The movie 
is stiffly staged and written; the actors, however, 
manage to make the most of their restrictive roles

HARLEM NIGHTS — I hr. 50 min.; 1989) This promising-

diming into Eddie Murphy the pop demagogue.

★ HENRY V— (2 hrs 15 mm.; 1989) A triumphant new 
version of Shakespeare's great war play directed by 
and starring tht- audacious 28-year-old Insh actor 
Kenneth Branagh, who goes up against Laurence 
Olivicr's famous 1944 film — and performance — and 
docs very well indeed. Branagh's is a tragic modern 
view — war not as glory but as miserable folly in the 
mud He keeps the camera generally close to the ac- 
tors; the readings are a little scaled down, and some- 
times surpnsingly intimate for this most public of 
Shakespeare's plays Still, these are English classical 
actors, and they don't go in for sycophantic horsing 
around Branagh himself, stubby, with a round jaw 
and close-set pale blue eyes, has a Cagneyish pugnaci- 
ty about him His young kmg lacks the romance that 
( Hivht brought to the role, but he's tougher and 
shrewder. As an actor. Branagh's attack offers sim- 
pluitv, less variety and rhetorical resourcefulness than 
( flivicr, but power enough All in all this is rowdy, 
direct, mud-earthy Shakespeare, popular in the best 
»**y . t )nc mistake: Branagh stages the battle of Agm- 

court in modernist, absurdist-tragic style, yet his bat- 
tle couldn't possibly have resulted in the one -sided 
English victory that he shows us. Still, it's a thrilling 
achievement, passionately acted and deeply humane.

★ THE LITTLE MERMAID — I hr. 22 min ; 1989) A musi- 
cal animated feature — a completely pleasant amalgam 
of Disney expertise and Broadway smarts. A rebel- 
lious young mermaid, Ariel (the voice of Jodi Ben- 
son), who longs for human contact, falls in love with 
a seafaring prince. She makes a deal with the under- 
water sea witch Ursula (Pat Carroll), who allows her 
to attain human form, but only for three days and 
without her beautiful voice. If And can't get the 
prince to kiss her within that time, she belongs to Ur- 
sula forever. Apart from the bland hero and heroine, 
the characters arc consistently funny. Pat Carroll is an 
uproarious vamp. Samuel E. Wright does the voice of 
the huffy, put-upon crab, Sebastian, and Buddy 
Hackett. at his delirious best, is Scuttle, a seriously 
confused sea gull. The musical numbers, by the team 
of Alan Menken (composer) and Howard Ashman 
(lyricist), are immensely engaging. The Little Mermaid 
offers intelligence and honest delight. Written and di- 
rected by the animation veterans Ron Clements and 
John Musket. Based on the fairy tak- by Hans Chris- 
tian Andersen. (12/4/89) G. 13. 20. 37, 40. 66. 85.

LOOK WHO'S TALKING — ! hr. 50 min.; 1989) Amy 
Hcckerhng's hit comedy is often dumb and obvious, 
but the ideas keep flowing, and some of them arc 
charming. The spermatozoa swimming uphill for 
their meeting with destiny have a fine rah-rah spirit; 
the babies talking to themselves are a gimmick that 
almost works. Kirstic Alley is pleasant but uninspired 
as a woman with no taste in men. but John Travolta is 
extremely charming as an unaggressive young man 
bom to be a father. Audiences yearn openly for the 
two to join in marriage. With George Segal as a sexual 
con artist. (11/13/89) PG-13 37. 42. 112. 220. 521,

MUSIC BOX— (1 hr. 50 min.; 1989) If writer Joe Eszterhas 
and director Costa-Gavras had anything profound in 
mind when they set out to make this movie, they 
managed to conceal it. The picture is essentially a 
courtroom drama about a dour Hungarian emigre 
(Armin MucUer-Stahl) who may or may not have 
been a war criminal during Hungary's Fascist period 
and his Amencan-bom daughter (Jessica Langc), a 
lawyer who defends htm when the United States tries 
to strip him of his citizenship. Was he or wasn't he? 
And will she continue to love and support him if he 
was? The movie doesn't investigate the truly interest- 
ing question, which is how monstrousness and love 
can coexist in the same person. Taut, well acted, but 
no more penetrating than a good TV movie. With 
Frederic Forrest. (1/15/90) R. 8, 18, 49, 80, 110, 200,

★ MY LEFT FOOT— (I hr 43 min.; 1989) An old-fash- 
ioned great movie So much emotion combined with 
so little self-consciousness now seems a ranty in art, a 
gift from an earlier, less knowing age Daniel Day- 
Lewis docs a fiery, physically awesome imperson- 
ation of the reaHifc Irish painter and writer Christy 
Brown, who was born with cerebral palsy and could 
freely move only his left foot. My Left Foot transcends 
questions of taste. Christy's fierce desire, emerging 
from the harsh Insh milieu, bums like raw whiskey, 
which, taken neat, washes away doubt, self-pity, em- 
barrassment. With the late Ray McAiully — beefy, 
red-laced, menacing — as Christy's father, an over- 
bearing man who has a force of prideful hie in him I 

that fills Chnsty. fighting him off. with rage and am- 

who never doubts his intelligence. The Insh theater 
director Jim Sheridan (he also wrote the screenplay 
with Shane Connaughton) works cleanly, with 
strength, simplicity, and fullness of emotion This 
film about disease is one of the least sickly movies ever 
made (1 1/13/89) 81, 719, 753 

MYSTERY TRAM— (1 hr. 50 min.; 1989) Clever, almost 
haunting, but definitely not a movie to see after a poor 
night's sleep. Jim Jarmusch's latest minimalist comedy 
is set in Memphis, which b still haunted by the blues 
and the early days of rock. Three separate stones, laid 
end to end (rather than intercut), all conclude at the 
old Arcade Hotel, with Scrcamin' Jay Hawkins, an 
authentic wild man from early rock days, appcanng 
as a night clerk. In the first episode, a young Japanese- 
couple (Youki Kudoh and Masatoshi Nagase). daz- 
zled at being in the cradle of Elvis and Carl Perkins, 
search for memories, but come up empty. In the sec- 
ond, a young Italian woman (Nicoletta Braschi) is an- 
other of Jarmusch's Europeans wandering forlornly 
among the cultural detritus of Amenta In the third — 
the most developed and funniest — a morose Brit. 
Johnny (Joe Strummcr). accompanied by his anxious 
brother-in-law (the comic Steve Buscemi) and a black 
fnend (Rick Aviles), shoots a liquor-store clerk who 
makes a racist remark. This episode has the contours 
of a classic absurdist fable, but the movie as a whole is 
awfully mild. Jarmusch plays harmless, leasing games 
with our expectations. With Cinque Lee as Scrcanun' 
Jay s sidekick. (10/20/89) R. 82 

★ THE PLOT AGAINST HARRY — hr. 21 nun.; 1989) Mi- 
chad Rocmcr's lost-and-found movie (shot m 19J69 
but completed only last year) is a bustling satirical 
comedy about a small-time Jewish gangster, Harry 
Plotnick (Martin Pnest). who comes out of prison 
only to discover that his prosperous Bronx numbers 
racket has fallen apart. Even worse. Harry's upwardly 
mobile family seems determined to shame him into 
virtue. He's bulked by charity organizers, surrounded 
by helpful, solicitous people who reform him and de- 
stroy him. The movie teases the implacably respect- 
able and nght-mmded spirit of middle-class American 
Jewish life. Roemcr works in loosely constructed tab- 
leau-like scenes, with odd characters running in and 
out and pushing Harry to the comers of his own lite 
The story is there, and the jokes arc there, but to fully 
enjoy everything the audience has to share Roemer's 
love of close observation. With a cast of amateur and 
professional actors. Excellent black-and-white cine- 
matography by Robert M. Young (1/15/90) 82 

★ ROGER A ME — 1 hr. 45 mm.; 1989) Bitterly funny 
documentary about corporate hcartlessncss and urban 
folly. Journalist Michael Moore, returning home to 
Flint, Michigan, in 1986. at the time of massive (Jen- 
eral Motors layoffs in the auto plants there, attempted 
to confront GM chairman Roger Smith and bring 
him to Flint to see the effects of what he had done 
With thousands unemployed, the city has fallen, on 
the one hand, into enme and disrepair, and. on the 
other, into a weird agc-of-Rcagan mood of publn - 
relations uplift. No fewer than three goofy, multi- 
million-dollar urban-renewal projects were undertak- 
en, with the aim of turning mined Hint into a dazzling 
tourist mccca Having failed at manufacture, America 
rums to ghastly media fantasies as a substitute. Essen- 
tial. Unforgettable. R. (12/18/89) 8, 18, 85, 219, 301.

★ SEX, LIES, AND VIDEOTAPE— ( 1 hr. 40 nun.; 1989) The 
four principal characters — a beautiful, frigid wife (An- 
die M.i. 1 Kiwi Hi her adulterous husband (Peter Gal- 
lagher), her vengeful sister (Laura San Giacomo), and I 
a wounded but clever outsider (James Spader) who 
fascinates the women — talk softly to one another. I 
about one another, and finally about themselves, and 
we are drawn by a gentle but insistent hand into a lab- 
yrinth of lust and betrayal. The 26-year-old Steven 
Soderbcrgh, in his debut feature, purs us in a trance 
He brings us so close to the characters that they seem 
transparent to us, yet he doesn't go in for that 
wrenching John Cassavetes stuff, pulling out rrvcla- I 
Hons with iron pincers. The minor penalty of Soder- 
bcrgh 's youth is his occasionally gummy sensitivity 
Still, Soderbcrgh makes canny uses of the videotapes, 
and the whole movie is so well acted and written thai 
the sillier ideas pass by easily. Shot in Baton Rouge 
(8/7/89) R. 4, 55

STEEL MAGNOLIAS — ] hr 45 man.; 1989) Excruciatingly 
dull all-star rubbish about six gals from the South 
who gather at a beauty parlor in a small Louisiana 
town to bitch at one another and chew over their 
lives. Robert Harlcy's material may work on stage, 
bul it's wildly ovcr-expbcit and charmless on screen. 
Young Julia Roberts, a diabetic, marries and. against 
the advice of her mother. Sally Field, conceives a 
child. The pregnancy, it seems, threatens her life, but 
all she wants in life is a baby. So her mother becomes 
a saint for trying to save her by giving her one of her 
own kidneys. This tragedy, more embarrassing than 
enlightening, is embedded in a thick of un- 

believably tedious gossip and banter. The town itself 
looks like a theme park; the men added to the story 
are merely negligible With Shirley MacLainc, Olym- 
pta Dukakis, and Darryl Hannah. Directed by Her-

STOUT Of WOMEN— (I hr. 50 mm.; 1989) In French. 
Eng subntlcs. IX-spcrately poor. Mane (Isabcllc 
Huppert) bves in a drab little town near Dieppe dur- 
ing the German occupation of France. Her husband is 
away at war, and she takes in knitting; then she begins 
doing abortions in her kitchen. Eventually she is de- 
nounced and executed for murder by the Vichy gov- 

Louisc Giraud. certain aspects of whose life have been 
fictionalized by director Claude Chabrol and screen- 
writer Colo Ta vernier.) The movie is about a wom- 
an's amoral instinct for survival in wartime and the 
hypocnucal judgment men impose on her. The film- 
makers arc not building sympathy lor Mane; we're 
meant to see her as wartime woman in extremis, and, 
as such, essentially honorable. An honest, often bril- 
liant, but bleak and remorseless movie (10/30/89) 81

VU*0HT-(2 hrs. 14 min.; 1989) Lavish, beautifully 
shot, but rather amorphous version of Chodcrlos de 
Lados's brilliant eighteenth-century novel. Les Lim- 
wni Dangerruses. which was made into the incisive and 
challenging Dangerous Liaisons only a year ago. Jean- 
Uaudc Carncrc's dialogue is mostly too ordinary lor 
prercvoluoorury French aristocrats. Director Milos 

I or man puts in endless amounts of exuberant detail, 
but works with a deficient sense of character. The two 
cynical aristocrats, the Marquise dc Mcrteuil (Annette 
Bcning) and Valmont (Colin Firth), play with the ro- 
mantic affection of young Cecik (Fairuza Balk), who 
says that she is fifteen but looks about thirteen. This 
Valmont is a handsome but uninteresting, reckless 
young man. Bcning, a very American-looking Mcr- 
teuil, paces everything at the same languorous tempo. 
Meg Tilly is the virtuous Madame dc Tourvcl. The 
movie is pretty, but almost completely trivial. Pho- 
tography by Miroslav Ondricck. (10/20/89) R. 4 

♦ THE WAR Of THE HOSES— (1 hr. 56 mm.; 1989) If 
nothing else, this establishes that Danny l>cVito is not 
an impostcr in a director's chair. The early scenes de- 
tailing the marriage of Oliver (Michael Douglas) and 
Barbara Rose (Kathleen Turner) arc well written, 
nicely acted, and psychologically convincing, but 
from the middle on, the movie goes way out of 
whack. The early strategy of showing how a "per- 
fect" marriage can come apart loses its balance when 
the Turner character retreats unaccountably into utter 
coldness; and when the two begin playing grizzly 
tricks on one another, the movie changes its style 
from realistic comedy to gothic sadism, and we check 
out on it altogether. Sour screenplay by Michael Lee-

(1 hr. 28 min.; 1988) In Spanish. Eng. subtitles A hi-

romantic fatalism, written and directed by Pedro Al- 
modovar, the bad boy of post-Franco cinema The 
movie is a sensual and guttering celebration of wom- 
en. In modern-day Madrid. Pcpa (the great Carmen 
Maura), an actress, is abandoned by her boyfriend, 
who docs voice-overs for TV commercials. As people 
of all shapes and sizes gather in her apartment, there's 
a touch of thirties Hollywood m the frantic pace and 
the heaped absurdities. Almoddvar draws on the 
comic advantage of gay sensibility — Ufc as passion, as 
color, as outrage and scandal, and as fun. In the end. 
magic and madness and romantic obsession all come 
together in a way that can only be called classical.

R E V I V A L S 

APOCALYPSE N0W-<2 hrs 30 nun.; 1979) For three- 
quarters of its length. Francis Coppola's work is mas- 
terful — a tragic, surrealist Vietnam War epic that 
grows in power and beauty as it conies closer to hallu- 
cination. But then, suddenly, the film falls to pieces, 
and the effect is devastating. With Martin Sheen, 
Marlon Brando, and Robert Duvall. 47 

BOB LE FLAMBEUR — hr. 40 mm.; 1955) In French. 
Eng. subtitles. A great film, perhaps the most perfect- 
ly controlled and witty work in the career of Jean- 
Pierre Melville, master formalist of the gangster film. 
His hero. Bob. a silver-haired gambler passes like a 
prince from one card game to another for a few hours 
before retiring at dawn. Bob is eventually drawn back 
into the criminal life he has forsworn— he makes a 
raid on the casino at IX-auvillc — but the movie is es- 
sentially a celebration of personal style and a poem 
about lowlife Pans 11 

BULL DURHAM— (I hr. 55 mm.; 1988) An exuberant tall- 
talc of a movie, about sex and baseball, wntten and 
directed by Ron Shelton. Susan Sarandon plays the 
poetry-quonng Annie, who each year selects a young 
man from the Durham Bulls baseball team — as her 

lover of the season. She then teaches the young man — 
this year it's "Nuke" LaLoosh. a gangly young pitch- 
er (Tim Robbins) — about love and baseball. Crash 
Davis (Kevin Costncr), a longtime minor-lcaguc 
catchcr. also takes Nuke in hand, and between the 
two ol them they turn him into a man. Eventually 
Crash dnfts toward Annie. 'I lie movie offers a nostal- 
gic poetry of the game that is kivcly and pure. 2 

CIRCLE Of DECEIT— (1 hr 48 min.; 1982) In German. 
Eng. subtitles. A powerful philosophical film about a 
West (.German journalist (Bruno Ganz) who covers the 
war between Christians and Moslems in Lebanon. 
Director Volkcr Schlondorff sends the journalist wan- 
dering through the ruined landscape of Beirut as it 
comes alive with terror and violence at night. Ap- 
palled by atrocities committed by Christians, the 
journalist frets over his own lack of commitment and 
laments European impotence and voycunsm. With 
Manna Schygulla. 9 

FTLLINI SATYRICON — (2 hrs 9 mm.; 1970) In Italian. 
Eng. subtitles. One vast, impressionism: canvas of life 
in ancient Rome at its most bizarre, cruel, decadent, 
and futile. Pctroiuus is the source. A shallow work, 
but pntonally spectacular. Dir. Fcdcnco FcUim. 11 

FIVE EASY PIECES— (1 hr. 36 min . 1970) A film much 
overrated when it first appeared because it aped pres- 
tigious European models. All about alienation in 
America, told in terms of a musical family from the 
state of Washington and the scapegrace son (Jack 
Nicholson) who works as an oil nggcr. Nicholson 
takes some of his scenes — ordering food in a diner, 
talkuig to his mute, paralyzed, expressionless father — 
to legendary heights. Dir Bob Rafclson. 2 

MARRIED TO THE MOB— ( 1 hr. 43 mm. ; 1988) In this alto- 
gether pleasant Jonathan Demmc comedy. Michelle 
Pfcitfer plays a Mafia wife who's grown tired of blood 
money When her Mafia-hitman husband is mur- 
dered by boss Tony "The Tiger" Russo (Dean Stock- 
well), she tries to lose herself on the Lower East Side, 
but neither Tony nor the FBI will leave her alone As 
a gung-ho young Fed who falls for her, Matthew 
Modine is gootily charming. Tim is slapstick roman- 
tic comedy at its best, borne aloft by I >cmmc's love of 
kitsch. 2 


1981) A funereally paced, humorless, gruidingly nat- 
uralistic version of James M. Cain's novel. Director 
Bob Rafclson and scrccnwntcr David Mamct (the 
playwright) treat the story as if it were written by 
Sophocles or O'Neill, yet add nothing that deepens 
Cain's entertaining but trashy fatalism With Jack 
Nicholson and Jessica Lange. 2 

SWANN IN LOVE — (1 hr. 50 mm. 1984) In French, Eng 
subtitles Not exactly a fiasco but without doubt a 
waste of nmc. Director Volkcr SchlondorfThas made 
a movie of one section of Marcel Proust's colossal 
novel, Remcrnbrame of Things Past. Charles Swann 
(Jeremy Irons), a wealthy Parisian art-lover of the 
1880s. is uifatuated with a beautiful courtesan (Or- 
nclla Muti). He tncs to possess her, but she lies to him 
about her present attachments; at the end of a long day 
they wind up in bed. So Proust's amazing fabric of 
memory and desire, perversity and pleasure has been 
reduced to a conventional talc with a few odd touches 
left in for the knowing. The movie is neither an ade- 
quate adaptation of Proust nor a self-contained movie 

THE TIN DRUM — (2 hrs. 22 min.; 1979) In German, Eng. 
subtitles. An anguished fable of modern European 
dislocation — social collapse, family brutality, the nse 
of Nazism — told through the prism of a little boy's 
cxpcncncc. He's so repelled by the bestiality around 
him that he decides at the age of three, to stop grow- 
ing. The movie is evocative, but its anger and disgust 
seem at times to be aimed at the wrong targets Based 
on the Giintcr Grass novel. Dir Volkcr Schlondortf 

THE W0MAH NEXT DOOR — (1 hr. 46 mm.; 1981) In 
French, Eng. subtitles Bernard (Gerard Dcpardieu) 
and Mathilde (Fanny Ardant). once passionately ui 
love, have gone their separate ways and married 
sweet, dull mates. But when Mathilde and her hus- 
band move next door to Bernard and his wife in sub- 
urban Grenoble, the two begin their violent, messy 
affair once agaui. Francois TrutTaut's movie has Ins 
customary fluency and warmth, but it's missing a 
convuicing representation of all-consuming passion.

myself an apprentice of all subjects. I do 
not pursue any activity with a compulsion.
